Word for Word Festival

Event Date: 22 November 2020
Author / Presenters: Stephanie Convery, Rebecca Giggs, Quentin Sprague & Lee Kofman

Three outstanding debut authors. Three life-changing writing journeys. Join us for this very special panel event featuring finalists for the Mark & Evette Moran Nib Literary Award 2020, Stephanie Convery (After the Count: The Death of Davey Browne), Rebecca Giggs (Fathoms: The World in the Whale) and Quentin Sprague (The Stranger Artist: Life at the Edge of Kimberley Painting). The $20,000 prize, awarded on Thursday 12 November, celebrates excellence in research and writing. Each of these shortlisted non-fiction works explores the cultural entanglements at the heart of their subjects: the often brutal world of boxing; science, philosophy and wonderment in ocean depths; and the crosscurrents and controversies of the Aboriginal art world.

Panel discussion with 2019 Nib Award shortlisted author, Lee Kofman.
