Hear debut authors paired with established authors talk candidly about their journeys to publication: their highs and lows, friends lost, and amount of wine and chocolate consumed during the writing process. Authors will confess to their innermost fears and share their vulnerabilities.

Join Meg McKinlay and Kathryn Lefroy for an enlightening and entertaining event as they chat about their writerly journey to publication and beyond.

Thanks to Underground Writers, copies of Meg and Kathryn’s novels will be available for purchase on the night! Underground Books is a not-for-profit bookstore that specialises in debut Australian titles. Funds from the store go towards supporting Underground Writers projects which provide information, education and encouragement to emerging Australian writers.

Meg McKinlay

Meg McKinlay is a children’s writer and poet. She has published seventeen books for children, ranging from picture books through to young adult novels, and a collection of poetry for adults. Her children's writing has won the Prime Minister’s Literary Award, the Queensland Literary Award, the Davitt Award for Crimewriting and the Aurealis Award for Speculative Fiction. Her latest titles are the middle-grade novel Catch a Falling Star and picture book Let Me Sleep, Sheep!, both published in 2019.

Kathryn Lefroy

Kathryn writes books, screenplays, articles — and the occasional shopping list. She has a PhD in marketing, several screenwriting credits, and her stories have appeared in magazines, journals and online. Alex and the Alpacas Save the World (Fremantle Press, 2019) is her debut novel. She spends way too much time in conversation with imaginary characters, and not-so-secretly wishes she lived in a dance movie.
