First Friday with Tiffany Tsao

2 September 2022, 12:30-1:30pm

Online, via Zoom

First Friday, our monthly conversation with an industry professional, is a chance for our community to learn more about the writing and publishing industry. This September, we invite you to our online event with Tiffany Tsao, editor of The Circular.

Some of the best new literary writing disappears without a trace online. Great writing can go viral – but much more frequently, great writing sinks quickly into deep digital archives. Editor Tiffany Tsao joins us to discuss how The Circular, a project of The Sydney Review of Books, keeps the best new Australian non-fiction in circulation; essays, interviews, reviews, features and more.

This event starts online at 12:30pm, via Zoom, and will run for 60 minutes. If there is time, we will take audience questions at the end. Free and open to members and non-members, but RSVPs are essential.

Registered attendees will receive a link to access this event online immediately prior to the event start time on Friday 2 September.


Tiffany Tsao is a novelist and a translator of Indonesian literature. Her novel Under Your Wings was longlisted for the Ned Kelly Prize. Her translation of Norman Erikson Pasaribu’s Happy Stories, Mostly was longlisted for the International Booker Prize and awarded the Republic of Consciousness Prize for Small Presses. She is the editor of The Circular – a weekly newsletter devoted to keeping the best Australian nonfiction in circulation.
