Event Details

The 2015 Perth Writers Festival will be the meeting place for the February, 100 Women Connect Event on Saturday 21st.

This will be a picnic on the grounds of UWA where 100 Women members or supporters can come gather and enjoy the festival events. Please note this is not an official Writers Festival event, this is an informal picnic to allow our members and supporters to connect with each other socially and be inspired intellectually by the excellent speaking events that the festival has to offer.

Please come prepared to picnic, bring a plate to share and perhaps a blanket, pillow or chair. A shaded meeting place on the UWA grounds will be emailed out to all of those who RSVP closer to the event.

 

Perth Writer’s Festival events that interest the Advisory Committee include the list below; please see the Writers Festival website for all ticketing and venue information:

How does a writer’s gender affect critical and popular responses to their work? Three of Australia’s boldest and most engaging authors, Maxine Beneba Clarke, Ceridwen Dovey and Alice Pung, discuss the ways we approach works by male and female writers across various forms, including fiction, non-fiction and the spaces in-between. With Aviva Tuffield.

Richard Rossiter’s new novella is a poetic exploration of identity and family, and the relationships between parents and children. Geraldine Wooller writes of love, friendship, loss and memory in her fourth book. They talk to Natasha Lester about the different threads weaving through their writing.

Michael Mori spent four years fighting for the release of David Hicks from Guantanamo Bay, while Bryan Stevenson has spent years defending those most desperate and in need in the USA. They talk about maintaining the pursuit of justice, even when things look lost.

Triple-bottom-line reporting has been a buzz-phrase for a while, but now there is a veritable revolution, led by accountants, to change global accounting practices and report on natural and social capital, alongside financial profit and loss. Is this the way to fix our planet? Jane Gleeson-White considers this new six-capitals accounting paradigm and how it may impact Australia. With Madonna King.

Do you need to have experienced it first-hand to write authentically about ageing? Liz Byrski and Emma Healey successfully capture older voices in their fiction – they talk to William Yeoman about writing from the point-of-view of someone at a different stage of life.
