Mitzi Rapkin of First Draft

In First Draft: A Dialogue On Writing, Mitzi Rapkin conducts thoughtful, in-depth interviews with writers of fiction, non-fiction, essays, and poetry—a wide and diverse group of authors from Benjamin Percy and Emily St. John Mandel to Kent Haruf and Celeste Ng. A longtime avid reader, Mitzi has been podcasting her interviews since 2015, and of its focus, she says, “The show is equal parts investigation into the craft of writing and conversation about the topics of an author’s work.”
