Asian Australian Writers Festival

UniMelb Arts Events

Event Date: 30 November 2023 09:30 AM to 30 November 2023 05:00 PM
Event Organiser: Creative Writing Program, University of Melbourne

The Asian Australian Writers Festival brings together Asian-Australian writers, critics, and editors to have the kinds of conversations with each other that we often can't in other spaces. What inspires us? What are we currently obsessed with? How do we write? How do we play with language? What conversational corners do we feel backed into, and how do we get out of them? What do we actually want to talk about? Join us to find out! Featuring conversations between:

  • Jessica Au & Jessica Zhan Mei Yu
  • Michelle Cahill & Melanie Cheng
  • Grace Yee & Nadia Niaz
  • Paige Clark & Jamie Marina Lau
  • Adalya Nash Hussein, Leah Jing McIntosh & Cher Tan
Hosted by the Creative Writing Program at the University of Melbourne. Lunch as well as morning and afternoon tea will be provided. Please enter dietary requirements at checkout.
