Writing, music and reading: these are the three passions of Australian freelance journalist and author Andrew McMillen (@Andrew_McMillen).

Dispatches is a weekly newsletter centred upon those three passions. Each Thursday, subscribers receive a hand-picked collection of recommendations in each field, with a special emphasis on 'longreads' – high quality, long-form narrative journalism published in the world's best magazines, newspapers, blogs and websites.

Andrew also hosts Penmanship, a podcast about Australian writing culture, which features in-depth interviews with Australians who earn a living from working with words.

Andrew's feature journalism has been published in The New York Times, The Weekend Australian Magazine, Rolling Stone, Good Weekend, The Saturday Paper, The Monthly, BuzzFeed and The Best Australian Science Writing 2016. His first book, Talking Smack: Honest Conversations About Drugs, was published by UQP in 2014. To learn more about Andrew's work, visit http://andrewmcmillen.com/
