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.
Julia will speak with Kirsten about her experience as an author and editor and the new ways writers have been working and promoting their books while in isolation, including a surprise musical element!
Registered attendees will receive a link to access this event online immediately prior to the event start time on Friday 7 August.
