"Being on stage and reading some of my work was a huge moment for me. I felt at home on stage and I loved connecting with the audience. It felt very special and I’m so grateful that I got to experience that."
"The nature of the Hot Desk—‘Inclusion Matters’—also gave me the opportunity to reflect upon exclusion, and the ways in which I have tempered my voice in certain spaces, and how tiresome constant reflexivity is."
"I realised that as a settler (i.e. someone who is not Indigenous to the land currently known as Australia) it is not for me to write the future of this land."
"I had all these poems about racial and cultural identity, diaspora and the struggle to belong. The sort of thing I’ve been writing about for a couple of years now. But I’d felt this urge for a while to move beyond that, or to expand on those themes in a different way."
The Centre for Stories is thrilled to announce that we will be sending five writers from our Inclusion Matters Hot Desk Fellowship to the 2019 Digital Writers Festival.
