In a Writers Bloc article Wiradjuri writer Hannah Donnelly addressed a concerning thread in Australian literature in which writers continue to colonise country through their writing. Donnelly is one of the three writers who’ll be on stage with researcher Alison Whittaker to talk about white-centric narratives in Aussie literature. Speakers include Indigenous literature expert Evelyn Araluen and Dark Emu author Bruce Pascoe (pictured).
