Words Fall In: Podcast featuring a “Voice from Down Under”

· an interview with Kel Purcill ·

December 30, 2017

This episode of the Segullah Writer’s Podcast features Kel Purcill, our resident Aussie writer, describing her life and writing. In this interview, Kel opens up to some hard things that she has experienced. She is always honest, courageous and not afraid to “sit in the mud” and examine everything around her in her search for meaning. She once called herself a “wobbegong shark that hoovers up bits and pieces” in the way she uses words for her writing craft. (I originally wrote this as woebegone, but Kel contacted me and said I misunderstood her accent. So, for those like me, the shark illiterate, there’s an Aussie shark somewhere who is a woebegone wobbegong). You can find her blog at Selwyn’s Sanity.

(Also, I threw in some bagpipes just because they remind me of Kel’s personality. Yes, I know she’s Australian and not Scottish. Also, they just sound better than a didgeredoo).

    This was such fun! I’ve loved reading Kel’s writing voice — now I’ve heard her spoken voice as well!

    How can I get an invite to Selwin’s Sanity? I’ve loved reading Kel’s words for years. I miss them.
