Long Form and Long Distance
|Friday 7th December||10:00 - 11:15||G11 3.64|
Join three Griffith Review contributors – Mirandi Riwoe (GR61); Lucy Neave (GR62); and APWT chair Sally Breen (one of the current Griffith Review Queensland Writing fellows) – and editor Ashley Hay as they explore the art and craft of evoking place in long-form fiction and narrative non-fiction. How does research feed into settings? How do writers bring places near and far – in terms of time as well as geography – to life? And what are the freedoms, the potentials and the responsibilities involved in realising place as a character in long-form work, as opposed to shorter formats?
