2019 Program Launch: The Awkward Stage

The 2019 Emerging Writers’ Festival launches with a night of readings. What, exactly, is an ‘emerging’ writer? At what point do you come out of the chrysalis?

At this special event, hear from Kat Clarke, Vidya Rajan, Sumudu Samarawickrama and Ahmed Yussuf, as they each tell us about the first time they considered themselves a writer. Hosted by the artistic director of the Emerging Writers’ Festival, Izzy Roberts-Orr, and program coordinator Aïsha Trambas.

Presented in partnership with The Wheeler Centre
