Emerging Writers Festival: A Raven, A Writing Desk

20 June, 2019 7pm | Event

Emerging Writers Festival (VIC)

What happens when we free ourselves from the sterile language of ‘mental illness and health’ to explore writers’ relationships with their minds? Personify your diagnosis. Rename your neurosis. Reclaim each and every contradictory feeling about your inner workings: ups, downs, digressions and all.

A night of storytelling dedicated to defining our own experiences, and recognising mental illness as both obstacle and inspiration. With Joel Burrows, Robin M Eames, Heidi Everett, Madison Griffiths, Gemma Mahadeo and Andrea Mendez
Hosted by Leah Avene
