Hannah Kent and Rebecca Starford Talk Kill Your Darlings
In 2010, Hannah Kent and Rebecca Starford, then in their mid-20s, had the ambitious idea to begin their own literary magazine. In its short life, Kill Your Darlings (KYD) has become a significant voice in Australian literary and cultural conversation. This year marks KYD’s final edition in print and an expansion in the magazine’s publishing program. Join Hannah and Rebecca as they discuss how they juggle their careers at KYD with their writing lives, and discover the ins and outs of running a literary magazine.
Chaired by Writers Victoria Communications Manager Emma Cayley. Publishing Director and Editor-in-Chief Rebecca Starford is a former editor at Text Publishing, and has worked for Affirm Press and Australian Book Review. Her writing has appeared in The Guardian, The Age, and Weekend Australian, and her debut memoir, Bad Behaviour, was published by Allen & Unwin in 2015.
Publishing Director Hannah Kent’s debut novel, Burial Rites (2013), was translated into 28 languages. It won the ABIA Literary Fiction Book of the Year and the Indie Awards Debut Fiction Book of the Year, and was shortlisted for the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction, the Stella Prize, the Guardian First Book Award, and the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. Hannah’s second novel, The Good People, was published last year.
