Dan Kaufman - The culture of bars, drinking and cats

View descriptionShare

After his newspaper decided to stop his bar review column (and therefore stop funding his perpetual cocktail habit), journalist Dan Kaufman started one of Australia's first bar blogs. BarZine was built out of spite over a decade ago inline with the small bar scene awakening in Sydney. Dan has just finished his first novel, 'Drowning in the Shallows', a comedy about a heartbroken journo who has to write about Sydney’s bars and social scene for a paper. Although he insists it's not autobiographical! On this episode, we delve into the creative writing process of constructing a novel. Short-form blogging versus long-form and how he's learnt to handle the rejection that comes with such a competitive industry.
