Podcast / Honouring: Sumner Locke Elliott

Listen to the podcast of our 2019 Honouring Australian Writers event on Sumner Locke Elliott.

In its annual Honouring Australian Writers series, Writing NSW pays tribute to writers who have made an important contribution to our literary culture.

In 2019 we honoured Sumner Locke Elliott (1917-1991), internationally best-selling author, playwright, and scriptwriter. Elliott is best known for Careful, He Might Hear You which won the 1963 Miles Franklin Award and was adapted into the 1983 film. The event included conversations, readings, and archival material, and featured Sharon Clarke, Kim Knuckey, Margaret Fink and Walter Mason.
