Where Whelan tells you just how became a writer in the first place. He takes you on a journey where a young wanna be novelist veers into the path of becoming a poet instead after his guitar is stolen from a sharehouse in Richmond. Whelan also coins the term for the writing genre 'Dirty Magic', a combination of Magical and Dirty Realism. For this episode Whelan performs two poems. One created by listener prompts. The other inspired by a writing exercise that involves closing your eyes and taking a book from a shelf at random and then writing something based on the title of that book.
