Event description

Description

On the first Friday night of each month, Brunswick Bound Upstairs hosts a night of local author readings.

It's your chance to discover a new author and for authors to discover new audiences.

In June, the event will feature authors Emily Brewin (Small Blessings), Elizabeth Coleman (Losing the Plot) and Louisa Deasey (Letter From Paris).

Each author will read from their work and there will be a short Q&A afterwards.

Light refreshments will be served at the event.

Emily Brewin is a Melbourne-based author and educator. She has been awarded an Australian Society of Authors Emerging Writers' and Illustrators' Mentorship for her fiction writing, and has been shortlisted for Hachette Australia's Manuscript Development Program and Varuna's Publisher Introduction Program. She was recently awarded a 2018 Moreland writer's residency and a 2018 Bundanon Trust artist residency to develop her third novel, The Piano. Emily's short stories have been short listed for a number of literary awards, including the 2017 Bristol Short Story Prize, Alan Marshall Short Story Award, Overland's Fair Australia Prize and the Elyne Mitchell Writing Awards. Her work has been published in Feminartsy, Meanjin, Kill Your Darlings, Mamamia, Shine, Metro and Screen Education magazines.

Elizabeth Coleman is the author of four published plays, including the smash hits Secret Bridesmaids' Business and It's My Party (And I'll Die If I Want To). Her theatre writing has also appeared in several anthologies. As a screenwriter Elizabeth adapted Secret Bridesmaids' Business into an award-winning ABC telemovie and has written for many of Australia's most popular dramas, including Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries and Bed of Roses, which she co-created with Jutta Goetze. Losing the Plot is her first novel.

Louisa Deasey is a Melbourne-based writer who has published widely, including in Overland, Vogue, The Australian, and The Saturday Age. Her first memoir, Love and Other U-Turns, was nominated for the Nita B. Kibble Award for women writers.
