First Friday, our monthly conversation with an industry professional, is a chance for our community to learn more about the writing and publishing industry.
This October, we invited you to our online event with Kate Mildenhall, co-host of The First Time podcast, in conversation with Rowena Tuziak, Membership & Operations Manager at Writing NSW. Watch the zoom recording here.
The process of publishing your first book can be daunting. On The First Time podcast, Kate Mildenhall interviews writers and industry insiders about the emotional and logistical journey of a debut novelist. Kate joined us for First Friday to discuss the ins and outs of hosting a podcast, her favourite moments and biggest challenges, and what she’s learned interviewing her guests about the practice and process of writing and publishing. You can view the zoom chat, including referenced links, here >>
