About this Event

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

This year we honour renowned author and political activist Katharine Susannah Prichard (1883-1969). She was opposed to racism, war, and all forms of social injustice and embraced these ideals in her writing. She published many major novels, including Working Bullocks, considered the first Australian modern novel, and Coonardoo, joint winner of the Bulletin Prize.
