Sugar Calling - Heather Dyer

If you're anything like me, what's unfolding in the world right now feels terrifying yet hopeful and full of potential. There's a lot to process.

So, you might want to take a break, sit back, and listen to Sugar Calling, in which Cheryl Strayed calls up authors Alice Walker, Billy Collins, Judy Blume, Margaret Atwood, George Saunders, Pico Iyer and others, to chat about their writing and the world.

Cheryl Strayed is warm, wise and funny, and is the author of Wild, and Tiny Beautiful Things - a compilation of the sanest, most heart-wrenching agony aunt advice ever, sourced from her Dear Sugar column.

Heather Dyer teaches Writing for Children for the Open College of the Arts, and provides writing and publishing advice through The Literary Consultancy, The Writers' Advice Centre for Children's Books, and privately. If you’re ready for feedback on your work-in-progress contact Heather at
