Description

Honouring Australian Writers: Oodgeroo Noonuccal

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

This year we honour Oodgeroo Noonuccal (1920-1993), Australia’s first published Aboriginal poet. Oodgeroo Noonuccal, known as Kath Walker until 1988, was also a political activist, educator, and artist. The event celebrating her contribution to Australian literature will include conversations, readings and archival materials.
