Chaired by Natalie Harkin.
Two of Australia’s most exciting young poets come together on one dynamic panel. Evelyn Araluen’s Dropbear is a razor-sharp gothic reclamation that peels back the layers of colonialism and what we call Australia. It is both a radical act of literary agency and a celebration of and tribute to Country. Jazz Money’s how to make a basket is a fierce lyrical protest against settler violence and an ode to Queer and First Nations love. Their poetry sings, crackles and inspires.
