First Chapters at Brunswick Bound
On the first Friday night of each month, Brunswick Bound hosts a night of local author readings.
It's your chance to discover a new author and for authors to discover new audiences.
In February, the event will feature Angela Meyer (Superior Spectre), Marlee Jane Ward (Orphancorp Trilogy) and Corey J. White (Saga Witch Trilogy).
Each author will read from their work of speculative fiction and there will be a short Q&A afterwards.
Light refreshments will be served at the event.
Angela Meyer’s writing has been widely published, including in Best Australian Stories, Island, The Big Issue, The Australian, The Lifted Brow and Killings. She has previously published a book of flash fiction, Captives (Inkerman & Blunt). She has worked in bookstores, as a book reviewer, in a whisky bar, and for the past few years has published a range of Australian authors for Echo Publishing, including award-winners and an international number one bestseller. She grew up in Northern NSW and lives in Melbourne. A Superior Spectre is her debut novel.
Marlee Jane Ward is a writer, reader and weirdo living in Melbourne. She likes dreaming of the future, cats and making an utter spectacle of herself. You can find her short stories in the Hear Me Roar Anthology, Interdictions and Mad Scientist Journal. Her novella Welcome to Orphancorp won the 2015 Seizure Viva La Novella Prize and the 2016 Victorian Premier's Literary Award for Young Adult Fiction. The final instalment of the Orphancorp Trilogy will be published in 2019.
Corey J. White is a writer of science-fiction, horror and other, harder to define stories. He is the facilitator of the nothing here newsletter featuring commentary and opinion from Marlee Jane Ward, Austin Armatys, John English and m1k3y. Corey is one half of the Oh Nothing Press, purveyors of narratively-dense artefacts and weird cultural errata.
