First Friday Club, our monthly conversation with an industry professional, is a chance for our community to learn more about the writing and publishing industry. This August, we invite you to our online event with Kirsten Krauth, novelist, editor and convenor of the popular Facebook group Writers Go Forth for writers publishing during the pandemic, in conversation with Writing NSW Program Manager Julia Tsalis.

Registered attendees will receive a link to access this event online immediately prior to the event start time on Friday 7 August.
