Event description

Description

You are invited to join us to celebrate the launch of Westerly's latest Online Special Issue for 2017: Flux.

The focus of Flux is to showcase the work of young writers and the work of incredible organisations, in providing platforms for the voices of emerging writers to be heard. The edition includes poetry from Maddie Godfrey, Raelee Lancaster and high school students who contributed to Primo Lux; a Western Australian literary journal commited to publishing the work of high school poets. It also includes interviews with the founders of The Literature Centre, Said Poets Society and reflections from Amaze of Story and The Stella Schools Program. The edition is a celebration of the ecosystem that supports emerging writers and the phenomenal work that results when young writers are supported and encouraged to pursure their passion and refine their craft.

We couldn't think of a better way to launch such an important issue, than offering young writers an opportunity to connect directly with local writing organisations and publishers. We are looking forward to an evening where we share the vision behind the issue, hear some phenomenal readings and a panel with local publishers about how to break into the industry. We are also looking forward to the 'speed dating' component of the evening, where local publishers and organisations will be available to speak with young and emerging writers about how their organisations work contributes to the WA Writing sector as a whole.

The issue will be officially launched by Dr. Catherine Noske, the Editor of Westerly, at Reid Library from 5pm on November 23. Light refreshments will be provided.

Admission is free, but tickets are limited so RSVP is essential.
