Rose Scott Women Writers’ Festival presents Tara June Winch
The Rose Scott Women Writers Festival is delighted to present an occasional series of intimate events where writers discuss their craft and explore the ideas and influences for their recent work and works in progress.
Tara June Winch’s profound and moving new novel The Yield will be released on 2 July. Described as “a ground-breaking novel for black and white Australia” by Richard Flanagan, it tells the story of a people and a culture dispossessed, celebrating what was and what endures as it powerfully reclaims Indigenous language, storytelling and identity.
Tara June Winch is a Wiradjuri author, now based in France. Her first novel Swallow the Air won numerous literary awards and a 10th Anniversary edition was published in 2016. In 2008, she was mentored by Nobel Prize winner Wole Soyinka as part of the prestigious Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative. Her short story collection After the Carnage was shortlisted for the 2017 NSW Premier’s Christina Stead prize for Fiction and the Queensland Literary Award for a collection. She wrote the Indigenous dance documentary Carriberrie which screened at the 71st Cannes Film Festival.
Geordie Williamson is a writer, editor and critic, and the chief literary critic of The Australian. His collection of essays on neglected Australian writers, The Burning Library, is essential reading for anyone interested in Australian literature.
