When seeking to be published, it might take one, two, or nineteen books, but what happens then? What is expected of a debut author, and what should your expectations be? And just how does it feel to hold your book in your hands? Join our three debut writers to talk about their lead-up to publication, the realities of working with publishers, and what happens next.

This seminar will take place online. Detailed instructions for participation will be provided.

About Ella Baxter

About Jazz Money

About Sneha Lees (Ruhi Lee)

She is studying acting at The National Theatre, Melbourne and Creative Business (Screen  Production) at The Compton School, University of Canberra.
