The next gen of First Nations writers take to the Club Stage

Four First Nations writers are taking to the Club Stage at Sydney Writers’ Festival to talk about community and courage, including a ‘live lit response’ honouring the matriarchal writers who have shaped their journeys. Yugambeh woman Ellen van Neervan (author of Comfort Food and Heat and Light) curated the line-up featuring poet and activist Evelyn Araluen; Hannah Donnelly, the writer and the creator of Sovereign Trax; writer and activist Nayuka Gorrie; and Lemons in the Chicken Wire poet Alison Whittaker. There are part of the next wave of First Nations women writers.
