Fremantle Press: How to be an Author

In this special edition of the Writers off the Page podcast, Chenée Marrapodi sits down with Cate Sutherland and Georgia Richter from Fremantle Press to find out what publishers really want. They discuss the dos and don'ts of submitting your work, how to know when your manuscript is ready, what happens when you sign a contract and much more.

For more than thirty years, the team at Fremantle Press has been bringing uniquely Australian stories to the world, producing quality works of fiction, non-fiction, children's literature and poetry.

Cate Sutherland is the publisher of children's and young adult books. Georgia Richter is the fiction, creative non-fiction and poetry publisher, and an IPEd Accredited Editor.

After hearing our chat, if you're interested in hearing even more tips from Fremantle Press, check out their new book, How to be an Author. In it, Georgia Richter and Deborah Hunn share all you need to know about inspiration and research, preparing to submit to a publisher, creating an author brand, legal, ethical and moral considerations, pitching, effective social media and much more.
