In the weeks prior to the Emerging Writers’ Festival’s 2016 Opening Night, the Malthouse Theatre’s Resident Dramaturg will be working with three brilliant storytellers, as they shape and craft a real life story to share on stage. By turns funny, heartfelt, wise and silly, each artist will share a story about a piece of advice they’ve been given–good or bad–and reveal whether or not they chose to take it.
Following the storytelling slam will be the announcement of the Victorian Premier’s Award for Unpublished Manuscript (co-presented with The Wheeler Centre) and the announcement for the Monash Undergraduate Creative Writing Prize.
With: Nayuka Gorrie, Fury, Dr Jill Tomlinson, Jane Harper, Paul Gorrie and Neil Morris.
Presented in partnership with the Wheeler Centre and the Coopers Malthouse.
