In a surreal reimagining of Tasmania, the interlocking riddles of Robbie Arnott’s Flames brim with love and grief, joy and pain. For this edition of The Next Big Thing, join Robbie Arnott, Moreno Giovannoni and Julia Prendergast – and a Voiceworks contributor, to be announced – at The Moat to share a taste of their exciting new works of fiction.
Flames sings out with joy and sadness. Utterly original in conception, spellbinding in its descriptions of nature and its celebration of the power of language, it announces the arrival of a thrilling new voice in contemporary fiction.
Join Robbie as he reads from and discusses his novel in conversation with Tim Byrne.
In her recent non-fiction work Draw Your Weapons, Sarah Sentilles challenges conventional thinking about how violence is waged, witnessed and resisted. She makes a case for art as a ‘weapon against weapons’ and helps us to see and feel the strength of the human spirit that lies in our responses to the horrors of war and violence.
In this unique conversation with The School of Life, Sarah Sentilles will explore how art helps us to live with and recover from violence.
Join Sarah Krasnostein for a workshop on voice in creative non-fiction. More than just a tone or perspective, voice is a signature. In this workshop,we will explore some of the many choices involved in the process of turning ourselves into credible and original narrators of true stories.
Join Jessie Cole, Miriam Lancewood and Gregory Smith in conversation with Nathan Scolaro about 'living wild'.
This session is supported by Dumbo Feather.
