Welcome to our new podcast, How to Be an Author in Australia, co-hosted by marketing and communications manager Claire Miller and publisher Georgia Richter. With regular guest appearances by editor Armelle Davies as the Comma Chameleon, the How to Be an Author podcast is an informal series of chats between publishing industry professionals. Like Georgia’s new book she co-wrote with Deborah Hunn, How to Be an Author: The Business of Being a Writer in Australia, it’s all about giving writers tips and tools of the trade as they start their writing career.
