Lunch/Break: Writing Collaboratively

What does it mean to write with another person? How does this shape our individual work as well as our sense of community and belonging? Hear from writers as they discuss the ins and outs of working with one another, how it informs their practice, and how you can implement it into your own.

This event is presented in partnership with City of Melbourne libraries.

Presented in partnership with:
