The Melbourne Writers Festival comes to Frankston once again with award-winning author Fiona Wright.
Fiona Wright is a writer, editor and critic from Sydney. Her book of essays Small Acts of Disappearance: Essays on Hunger won the 2016 Nita B. Kibble Award and the Queensland Literary Award for non-fiction, and was shortlisted for the Stella Prize and the NSW Premier’s Douglas Stewart Award. Her first poetry collection, Knuckled, won the 2012 Dame Mary Gilmore Award, while Domestic Interior was shortlisted for the 2018 Prime Minister’s Literary Award for Poetry. Her most recent book of essays, The World Was Whole, was longlisted for the 2019 Stella Prize.
Fiona will talk about her essay collection, The World Was Whole. She will discuss how we inhabit and remember familiar spaces, such as our bodies and our homes, and how we use these to form routines and create meaning. Fiona will be in conversation with Elizabeth Flux who is a freelance writer and editor based in Melbourne.
The event is free but bookings are essential. Bookings open Friday 12 July.
