As part of Kill Your Darlings’ commitment to in-depth arts coverage, we have selected nine regular Killings columnists to cover Australian books and writing; film and television; and music, theatre and visual arts throughout 2012.

We’re delighted to announce that the Killings Australian books and writing columnists are Caroline Hamilton, S.A. Jones and Laurie Steed. Our film and television columnists are Thomas Caldwell, Kate Harper and Brad Nguyen. And welcome to our music, theatre and visual arts columnists, Nikki Lusk, Timothy Roberts and Julia Tulloh.

Their columns will begin on Monday next week.
