3 of Australia’s most admired and influential writers from across 3 generations come together to deliver an extraordinary Opening Night Address.
Miles Franklin Award winners Tara June Winch (The Yield, appearing via video) and Melissa Lucashenko (Too Much Lip), and debut poet and essayist Evelyn Araluen (Dropbear), reflect on the indomitable writers that came before them and the future they hope their words will embolden.
Together, they invite us to consider what worlds the right words can bring within reach.
