Thanks Mel Campbell for this excellent and candid discussion about the difficulties & challenges of being a (midlist) writer:
**Mel Campbell** published her first book, *Out of Shape*, last year. Since then, she’s been struggling with ideas of what it is to be a successful author … along with most of the other authors published in Australia. Here, she reflects on what it means to be in the ‘midlist’ right now: financially, personally and professionally. – The Wheeler Centre: Books, Writing, Ideas.
