Free Event & The Early Words

The Early Words: Literary Selfies

When was the first time you saw yourself represented in literature? If you’re a person of colour, it is rare to find a fictional character who looks like you and who you identify with. Join three writers as they read a letter to the character they first saw themselves in, discuss why representation matters, and break down whiteness in the literary canon.

With Flora Chol, Vanessa Giron and Sumarlinah Raden Winoto

The Early Words is supported by Coffee Supreme, Schulz Organic Dairy and Irrewarra
