Patrick Gunasekera, Belinda Hermawan and Priya Kahlon – three writers from the Centre for Stories’ Indian Ocean mentorship project – talk to Claudia Mancini about the joys and challenges of being an emerging writer.

Patrick Gunasekera is a queercrip Sinhala interdisciplinary artist based in the Whadjuk region of the Noongar nation, disrupting white and settler epistemologies of art through writing, visual media, performance-making and advocacy. He has been published in Voiceworks, Australian Poetry Journal, Seesaw, Pelican, the Centre For Stories’ anthology Wave After Wave, and is a contributor to the upcoming Black Inc. anthology Growing Up Disabled in Australia. He is currently working on his first play and his first poetry collection.

Belinda Hermawan is a Pushcart-nominated writer whose short fiction has been published by Cosmonauts Avenue, Pigeon Pages, Flock, Split Lip Magazine, Westerly, Going Down Swinging and elsewhere. 

Priya Kahlon is an emerging Australian poet whose work has featured in The Tiger Moth Review, Enchanting Verses Literary Review and anthologies from Night Parrot Press and the Centre for Stories. Kahlon's poetry explores the ideas of identity, our place in the world and purpose of our lives and uses language as a way to break free from the structure and expectations of modern society.
