The solitary author in her eyrie is a romantic image, but support is key to many writers making it across the finish line, whether with their first book or their fiftieth. Who do you trust to read those early drafts? What opportunities are out there that you haven’t heard about? Our panel shares hard-won insights.

Penulis yang mampu terus-menerus berkarya merupakan sebuah gambaran yang sempurna, tetapi dukungan menjadi kunci bagi banyak penulis yang membuat mereka mampu menyelesaikan karyanya, baik itu untuk buku pertama atau kelima puluh mereka. Siapakah yang Anda percayai untuk membaca tulisan awal Anda? Kesempatan-kesempatan apa saja yang ada di luar sana yang sekiranya belum Anda dengar? Panel kami berbagi cerita mengenai bagaimana menghadapi hal ini.
