EP133: Pernille Hughes – A Star In Sweatpants Is Born
Pernille Hughes brings the funny with her debut novel Sweatpants at Tiffanie’s. To add to the joy, Pernille is one of our listeners and we trace her journey from sharing a photocopier with a Teletubbie to a deal with Harper Impulse.

- Why good comedy writing involves smoothing outlayers and banging your head against a table
- How to get an agent with nothing more than a spreadsheet, Twitter, determination and a bit of nerve
