Debut Author Podcasts

Each Debut Author Podcast is a conversation between our moderator Maggie Smith and a debut women's fiction author. 

Maggie Smith, a member of WFWA since 2015, hosts our podcast. Her debut novel, TRUTH AND OTHER LIES, placed third in the 2019 Rising Star competition and will be published in Spring 2021 by Filles-Vertes Press. Her short story, THE DEVIL YOU KNOW, appeared in the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writer’s 2018 anthology False Face and she blogs on writing-related topics for the Chicago Writers Association.  A confirmed workshop junkie and avid Instragrammer, Maggie makes her home in Milwaukee.
