Writing NSW invites you to join novelist, editor and convenor of the popular Facebook group Writers Go Forth for writers publishing during the pandemic, Kirsten Krauth, 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!
This event starts online at 12:30pm, via Zoom, and will run for approximately 60 minutes. If there is time, we will take audience questions at the end. Free and open to members and non-members, but registration is essential.
Registered attendees will receive a link to access this event online immediately prior to the event start time on Friday 7 August.
