Jamie Marina Lau: Writing the Hyperreal

How do we process experiences within our writing? How do we access subconscious matter and transform it into an artefact as permanent and tangible as writing? And is writing tangible at all? In her keynote, hear from Jamie Marina-Lau as she discusses the hyperreal, accessing it for your writing and how to make the terrifying leap onto the page.


Writing the Hyperreal is part of the National Writers’ Conference, a one-day online gathering of emerging writers on Zoom.
