The Wheeler Centre’s Next Chapter writers’ scheme is designed to give underrepresented voices a step-up, providing the time, space and introductions necessary to get a foot in the door and shake up the discourse within Australian publishing from the inside. In this panel discussion, Next Chapter recipients past and present, including Hasib Hourani, Tristen Harwood and Anne-Marie Te Whiu, will share their experiences of the scheme and discuss the many ways emerging writers are making the most of opportunities to break through barriers and challenge the assumptions of Australian publishing. Hosted by poet, academic and 2021 Next Chapter judge and mentor Jeanine Leane.
