Episode #025 Making Headlines with Author, Jennifer Hansen

This week Vanessa chatted to Jennifer Hansen, who is best known to TV audiences as the former co-host of Channel Ten’s 5pm news in Melbourne.

These days Jennifer works in radio as part of Smooth FM’s breakfast show where she reads the news and chats with Mike Perso about all things Melbourne.

In between media gigs, Jennifer went back to ‘school’ – taking up the ‘Professional Writing and Editing’ course at RMIT. That has helped her complete her first novel, MAKING HEADLINES. Jennifer spoke about the experience of going back to "school" to study writing, shared some thoughts on what the editing process was like, and gave us a glimpse into how she successfully launched her eBook.

Vanessa and Kim also shared some of their favourite writing-related books, thoughts on studying writing and the value of a writing group.
