Today we spoke to Uli Hesse - acclaimed football writer and author, editor and journalist; author of "Tor", "Bayern...", "Building the Yellow Wall..."
Uli talks about employment as a writer now with the editorial staff of 11 Freunde magazine, Germany's biggest football monthly versus being self-employed as a freelancer in the past.
This man won the 'football book of the year' by the Telegraph last year - aspiring and established writers can learn so much from Uli. We talk about books in a foreign language and the challenges of that for selling and publicity, considering English readership markets. We lean in when Uli discusses what makes a good writer - and the point in time when he identified himself as a writer.
This is a remarkable true-to-life journey of a writer who started penning pieces about music in 'Rolling Stone' magazine to football, and all that came in between.
Thanks for joining us Uli!
