New “Beyond the Page” Podcast with Louise Dennys

New “Beyond the Page” Podcast with Louise Dennys


In this episode of Beyond the Page, host John Burnham Schwartz talks with editor and Canadian publishing titan Louise Dennys about her extraordinary career working side by side with writers including Salman Rushdie, Michael Ondaatje, Kazuo Ishiguro, Margaret Atwood, Ian McEwan… to name just a few. Dennys, who is also an SVWC Literary Advisor,  talks about how she got started, what it’s like to nurture and promote some of the strongest literary voices of a generation, and the importance of freedom of expression, now more than ever.




Over the past 25 years, the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference has become the gold standard of American literary festivals, bringing together contemporary writing’s brightest stars for their view of the world through a literary lens. Hosted by SVWC Literary Director John Burnham Schwartz, and in partnership with Literary Hub, the Beyond the Page podcast curates and distills the best talks from the past quarter century at the Writers’ Conference—giving you a front row seat on the kind of knowledge, inspiration, laughter, and meaning that Sun Valley is known for.



All episodes can be played from the SVWC website on our Podcasts page or from other public podcast platforms, including Apple, Stitcher, and Spotify.
