Talking Writing: Exploring the nature of place

Thursday 20 April, 6–8:00pm

Talking Writing is our regular themed writing event, designed to explore the limits of what writing is and where it can take you. The first event in the 2023 series will focus on writing place, environment and the climate crisis.

At Talking Writing: Exploring the nature of place, a journalist, scientist, poet and speculative fiction writer discuss writing hope and despair in the face of climate emergency. 

Join us at Writing NSW on Thursday 20 April 2023 from 6pm and hear our guests discuss how they respond to the climate emergency through their writing, how they navigate hope and despair, and how narrative can help shape or draw attention to the future we see before us.

From 6pm, join us for drinks, nibbles, and a chance to meet other writers. The panel will take place from 6:30-8pm.

Guests include Emeritus Professor Lesley Hughes, Gamilaroi poet Luke Patterson, journalist Ivy Shih, and speculative fiction novelist Daniel Findlay. Hosted by Jane McCredie, CEO of Writing NSW.

Writing NSW members can attend for free and bring along a plus one. The event is $10 for non-members. Register for Talking Writing: Exploring the nature of place
