This week’s episode is with Victoria Hannan.
Victoria Hannan is a writer, photographer and creative director living in Melbourne. Her first novel Kokomo was the winner of the 2019 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an Unpublished Manuscript.
We discuss the highs and lows of being a writer, and how the writing life is just one part of actual life. They discuss awards (Victoria was the winner of the Victorian Premiers Unpublished Manuscript Award 2019), retreats, massive word counts and wonderful-difficult moments.
Victoria’s favourite novel by a debut author is For the Love of a Bad Man by Laura Elizabeth Wollert.
