Life Writing with Andre Dao


Event Date: 21 March 2023
Author / Presenters: Andre Dao

How do we write from lived experiences – both our own and others’? Learn how to conduct interviews and edit them into different forms: oral history, family biography, and (autobiographical) fiction.

About our Author:

André Dao is a writer, editor, researcher, and artist. His debut novel, Anam, won the 2021 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an Unpublished Manuscript. He is also the co-founder of Behind the Wire, an oral history project documenting people’s experience of immigration detention, and a producer of the Walkley-award winning podcast, The Messenger.

This event is part of the Brimbank Writers and Readers Festival 2023
