Chenee Marrapodi ‘The Dos and Don’ts of a Debut Author’

Chenee Marrapodi is an Australian writer and podcaster. She has worked in media for many years, currently for Channel Nine News, and formerly as a reporter for Channel Seven’s Today Tonight, as well as online news and radio. Chenee’s love of words is rivalled only by her love of dance. Combining the two, One Wrong Turn is her first novel.

In the 81st episode of the HYBRID Author Podcast host Joanne Morrell, author of children’s and young adult fiction and short non fiction for writers chats to fellow podcast host Chenee about:

  • manuscript rewrites
  • rejections at the tender age of 12
  • writing groups
  • traditional publishing house preparations for debut authors
  • contract to publishing and editing process
  • best and worst bits of being a debut
  • and Chenee shares her tips for emerging authors.
