A podcast about the first time you...publish a book.
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.

Great concept and generously shared experience

Priceless to be able to live the first time experience, as it happens. I’ve learnt so much and I think it is very generous and courageous of K and K to commit to sharing, in real time, blow by blow. Thank you Katherine and Kate!

So Good

I listen to a lot of writing podcasts. This is by far my favorite. The guest writers share thoughtful pieces of advice and their personal publishing stories - drawn out by the warm hosts - and I appreciate every word! Highly recommended for the writing community. ❤️

Hooray for series two

Delighted you are planning another series. I am a firm fan. You are very easy to listen to- nothing fake or forced. Great content. I’ve learned loads.
