The First Time
Author: The First Time PodcastSubscribed: 53Played: 798
One part reality show, one part writers’ master class. 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.
