The Riff Raff Podcast #3 - Kit de Waal
In episode 3 of our brand spanking new podcast, we're lucky enough to chat to Desmond Elliott Prize nominee, Kit de Waal. Kit's book, My Name is Leon, has been shortlisted for multiple awards, including the British Books Awards 2017 Debut Book of the Year and the Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year Award 2017. Such a champ!
We chat to Kit about how her career prior to writing helped to influence her book, how vital it is to work, work, work, until you're certain your book is as good as it can be, and discuss whether taking on a Creative Writing Masters is a must or a meh!
Learn more about Kit, and the Kit de Waal Creative Writing Scholarship at Birkbeck University.
