They’ll share practical advice on navigating the logistics and all the emotions, and will answer all your burning questions on writing, publishing and promoting your first book.
The First Time Podcast
Part reality show, part writers’ masterclass, The First Time is a podcast about the first time you publish a book. Debut novelists Katherine Collette and Kate Mildenhall get practical advice from Australian writers on all the firsts: agents, editors, social media, reviews and if you need to get your nails done to match your book cover. And Kate makes Katherine spill the beans on all her feels in the lead up to the September launch of Katherine’s debut novel, The Helpline. The First Time podcast is supported by partners RMIT University, Writers Victoria and ACT Writers Centre. Find out more www.thefirsttimepodcast.com.
