10×10 is a series of 10 minute podcasts with presenter and journalist Rosie Goldsmith commissioned and originally published by the Commonwealth Writers. In each podcast Rosie spends 10 minutes talking to authors from five different parts of the world.
The podcasts include Margaret Atwood from Canada, Jamaica’s Lorna Goodison, Sri Lankan-born writer Romesh Gunesekera and Kenya’s Binyavanga Wainaina. Each podcast features an interview with the author about their life, writing and motivation as well as a reading from their work.
Craig Cliff is the author of the novel ‘The Mannequin Makers’ (2013), described by The New Zealand Listener as “tremendous, darkly entertaining and original from start to finish”, and the short story collection ‘A Man Melting’ (2011), which won Best First Book in the 2011 Commonwealth Writers’ Prize. Craig writes a column for the Dominion Post about his double life as a writer and public servant in Wellington, New Zealand, where he lives with his wife and daughter. He was a judge for the 2012 Commonwealth Short Story Prize. Listen to the podcast with Craig Cliff.
