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 June, we invite you to our online event with commissioning editor for Ultimo Press, Brigid Mullane.
In conversation with Program Director, Julia Tsalis, Brigid will be discussing her role as editor and how that has been informed by her work across the industry. The conversation will also cover her career, publishing trends, and how writers can best prepare their work for submission.
This event starts online at 12:30pm, via Zoom, and will run for 60 minutes. If there is time, we will take audience questions at the end. Free and open to members and non-members, but RSVPs are essential.
Registered attendees will receive a link to access this event online immediately prior to the event start time on Friday 3 June.
