Living the Dream Podcast competition

Categories: Uncategorised

To celebrate the publication of Lauren Berry’s Living the Dream in July, we are recording a podcast with Lauren and we need your input.

Living the Dream is the funny, satirical, sharp and honest look at modern British life from the perspective of two young women. In a world of overdrafts, day jobs and hangovers, and where expectations and reality don’t quite match up, it will leave you questioning whether you are really living the dream?!

With this in mind, we’d love Virago readers to share their experiences of dating and work woes, and in the podcast in Agony-Aunt style, Lauren will offer her best survival tips and how we might manage expectations vs. reality in adult life.

Submit your questions to with the subject line LIVING THE DREAM PODCAST for a chance to have your problem answered by Lauren! We will also choose a winner from the submissions, and the winner will win a signed copy of the book. Closing date: 27th June.
