Excited to share the new Overland Literary Journal edition that I co-edited. It’s called The idea of women. Enjoy.
So god damn excited to be a part of this. I’m also reading at its launch at the Brisbane Writers Festival on Friday the 8th September (5pm) . Make sure you come on down and buy a copy. For all the details on the launch go to the BAREKNUCKLE BOOKS WEBSITE.
My new project with Leah Shelton and supported by the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Art, is ‘history exists here’. Check out the website here. And make sure to follow us on Instagram – @historyexistshere, to see what we are up to!
Excited to announce that I, along with the uber fabulous Craig Bolland will be guest editors for the next Overland Literary Journal fiction edition. ‘The idea of women’ is the theme and we are looking for fiction that explores – broadly – how women are experienced as ideas rather than realities. Women as fantastic beasts. Women as projections. Women not as they actually are, but as they are imagined and fantasised about; as they are limited and defined by, or viewed through, ideas of femininity – from the empowered to the absurd.
