Vignettes: The EWF Podcast – Season 3

Vignettes is an audio reading series from the Emerging Writers’ Festival.

Welcome to Season 3: Spring. This season, we’ll be sharing brand new audio stories from emerging writers across the continent. With readings spanning genres, forms and themes, Vignettes will feature personal essays, poetry and short stories on everything from mothering to the politics of food.

Vignettes is produced by Millie Baylis and audio produced by Joe Buchan. Our theme music was created by Thu Care, and our artwork is by Molly Hunt.

This podcast was produced on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nations. We acknowledge that First Nations Peoples are the first storytellers of this land, and that their sovereignty has never been ceded. We pay respects to Elders past and present, and to the Elders of the lands that this podcast reaches.

EPISODE 2: BODY LANGUAGE.

In this episode, Oliver Reeson, Mia Nie and Tori Hobbs share readings on the theme Body Language.

These artists reflect on bodies in pain and bodies in pleasure; what it means to inhabit a body in transition and a body in illness. They will consider both the ordinariness and specialness, as well as the resistance, of living in their bodies.

You can read Oliver Reeson’s essay ‘Body Language: on Kylie Minogue, Cancer and Coming Back to Life’ here.
