Welcome to Vignettes, a new audio reading series from the Emerging Writers’ Festival.
Our first season is Summer, and it features five episodes of fresh, original work by emerging writers responding to themes drawn from the world of nature. Each episode, we’ll feature emerging writers from all around the continent, working across genres and forms.
Stick with us as we bring you a soft, summery vibe with new creative readings!
The Emerging Writers’ Festival (EWF) is one of Australia’s most established and well-respected literary festivals. We exist to develop, nurture and promote Australia’s new writing talent, creating platforms for connecting writing communities and their audiences.
This audio was produced on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nations. We acknowledge that First Nations Peoples are the first storytellers of this land, and that their sovereignty has never been ceded. We pay our respects to Elders past and present, and to the Elders of the lands this podcast reaches.
Vignettes - Season 1: Summer, Episode 3 - Plant
For our third episode, we’ll hear from artists Jesse Oliver and Jazz Money with their creative responses to the theme, 'Plant'.
We invited them to reflect on their connections to the green, moving, breathing things - from houseplants to forest floors - that we are so lucky to co-exist with.
Vignettes - Season 1: Summer, Episode 2 - Sky
When you cast your mind up towards the sky, what do you think of? Perhaps you think of clouds, sunsets and shades of blue. Maybe your mind wanders further and reaches for instances of optimism, searching for opportunities and wandering into dream spaces.
For this episode, we invited Awale Ahmed, Christy Tan and Ruby Hillsmith to respond to the theme of Sky. We can’t wait for you to hear what they have in store.
Vignettes - Season 1: Summer, Episode 1 - Grain
For this first episode, we asked Philip Marri Winzer and Victoria Alondra to respond to the theme of 'Grain'. To us, grain speaks to the smallness of something at its beginning, which is why it felt like a perfect opener for this new podcast. But it’s also sustenance, building, the fibres of being and, of course, going against the grain.
We hope you enjoy hearing from these two spectacular artists.
