Professor Kim Wilkins

Lecturer in Writing, Publishing, and 21st-Century Book Culture

Professor Kim Wilkins has always been happiest when immersed in a good story. 

But after spending much of her early working life in a number of fast-food outlets, even she couldn't imagine she would one day have a successful literature career. 

Professor Wilkins is now a recognised expert on creative practice, popular literature, and the publishing industry, and is the author of more than 30 full-length works of fiction.

Watch the video to find out how she starred in her own story of self-discovery and success.
