The fun starts at the 2013 program launch, where four writers will be challenged to leave their comfort zones behind and write well outside their genres.
How will the novelist survive composing experimental cut-up poetry? How will the YA writer create erotica for a very different, very adult audience? And how will the literary critic cope when the tables are turned, and they must come up with something creative?
Be amused (and maybe learn something new) at this genre-bending writers’ challenge.
Nicki Greenberg is a writer and illustrator with a special interest in sequential art narrative – a fancy way of describing comics. Her latest book is an adaptation of Hamlet.
Toni Jordan is the author of Addition, Fall Girl and Nine Days.
Andrew McDonald is an author of books for children and young adults.
Luke Ryan is a freelance writer, comedian and man about town. He writes short-form non-fiction with a comic edge and is currently working on his debut book, I Guess You’re Only as Sick as You Feel, a comedy memoir about having had cancer a couple of times, due for release through Scribe Publications in late 2013.
