In writing, a first draft is where creativity flows, a story takes root and the voice of a writer emerges. First Draft highlights the voices of writers as they discuss their work, their craft and the literary arts. This weekly show hosted by Mitzi Rapkin will primarily feature fiction and non-fiction authors along with occasional poets, screenplay writers, playwrights and songwriters. First Draft is a celebration of writing and the individuals who are dedicated to bringing their carefully chosen words to print as well as the impact writers have on the world we live in.

Customer Reviews

The best!

I am so pleased that First Draft is on iTunes! It is an interview show of the highest order, both because of the guests that appear and because the host, Mitzi Rapkin, is able to delve deeply into the books being discussed through her questions. It's very clear that she is a careful, intelligent reader, and her guests open up because of that. And the guests she gets--Jim Shepard, Meg Wolitzer, George Saunders, Charles Baxter, Molly Antopol, etc.--are among the best American writers at work today. I would recommend it both to writers and to readers interested in current American literature. Super happy that this show exists, and that I can now download and listen to it anywhere. Looking forward to more.

Worth listening to for Readers and Writers
