While ‘emerging writer’ is a common phrase in artist bios and funding categories, it can be unclear when a person has officially ‘emerged’.

Is it once you’ve been published or are earning an income from your writing, or is it more a case of attitude, skillset or age? Join Varuna Creative Director Maeve Marsden and writers Graham Akhurst (Borderland), Winnie Dunn (Dirt Poor Islanders) and Kate Mildenhall (The Hummingbird Effect) as they discuss their paths to publication and offer guidance for those with literary stars in their eyes.

Presented in partnership with Varuna, the National Writers’ House.
