Personally, Will Kostakis is ready to catch a ball two seconds after it’s hit him in the face. Professionally, he’s thankful he’s chosen a career that requires little (if any) coordination. After dabbling in celebrity journalism and reality TV, he now writes for young adults.
Will is a writer of all things, from celebrity news stories that score cease and desist letters, to tweets for professional wrestlers. His first novel, Loathing Lola, was released when he was just nineteen, and his second, The First Third, won the 2014 Gold Inky Award. It was also shortlisted for the Children’s Book Council of Australia Book of the Year and Prime Minister’s Literary awards. The Sidekicks is his third novel for young adults and his first fantasy novel series Monuments begins in spring 2019.
Will shares practical creative writing advice, shaping a writing career and reflects on his work as a celebrity journalist, crafting celebrity tweets and creating content for reality TV.
All welcome to enjoy a slice of pizza or two following Will’s talk.
