    Poet Bron Bateman on writing, memory and the female body

    Poet Bron Bateman on writing, memory and the female body

    Bron Bateman says she makes sense of the world through writing. She is an observer of her own life, absorbing every experience with all senses so she can articulate it in poetry. She's also the ideal interviewee. She wants to answer every question put to her, no matter how difficult, because, she says, it's only by doing this that we can truly reach each other as writers and as humans.
    In this podcast, we talk to Bron about her writing process in relation to her new poetry collection, Of Memory and Furniture. For more information her poetry collection and the works of other writers discussed in the podcast, please go to the show notes page: http://bit.ly/2UGmjif

    We invite you all to spend some time with this wonderful poet but please take care. This podcast contains references to sexual violence, miscarriages and the largely unacknowledged experience of childbirth trauma.

    Holden Sheppard talks to David Whish-Wilson about his hard-hitting new crime novel True West and what it says about our right-wing past and our political present

    Holden Sheppard talks to David Whish-Wilson about his hard-hitting new crime novel True West and what it says about our right-wing past and our political present

    David Whish-Wilson says seeing the rise of populism and nationalist right-wing movements around the world made him want to reflect on Australia's long history of nationalist movements. 'I hadn't seen anyone else writing about Perth's late-80s Neo-Nazi scene ... I've spoken to many Asian Australians over the years and they often talk about that as a particularly unpleasant time to be a Western Australian ... I really wanted a mini-exploration of that period to reference what's happening around the world now.' As well as being an award-winning crime writer, David is the Creative Writing coordinator at Curtin University. In this podcast, Holden and David delve into some basic things we can all do make ourselves better writers.
