Irma is the founder and co-host of the Secrets from the Green Room podcast with Karen Viggers. Each episode they chat with a writer about their experience of the writing and publishing process in honest green room-style, uncovering some of the plain and simple truths, as well as some of the secrets — whether they be mundane or salubrious — and having a lot of fun in the process.

Secrets from the Green Room is supported by Marion Writers, Writers Victoria and The Book Cow bookshop in Kingston, ACT.

Episodes feature conversations with Charlotte Wood, Craig Silvey, Sofie Laguna, Tony Birch, Diana Reid, James Bradley and many more!
