Writing and Speaking Indigenous Lives: Brooke Boney, Laura Murphy-Oates, Nardi Simpson, Alison Whittaker

FWF18 Sydney: Writing and Speaking Indigenous Lives with Laura Murphy-Oates, Nardi Simpson, Alison Whittaker and chair Brooke Boney.

Indigenous storytelling has a long, rich and varied tradition that has been overshadowed by colonial narratives and appropriated by white settler representations of Aboriginal experience. As Indigenous writers are rewriting their stories, our guests reveal how their writing and speaking matters to them as individuals,  and the impact it has on changing the Australian lit-scape.

Listen to the podcast on the Writes 4 Festivals website.
