Alex Miller, Robert Dessaix & Liz Byrski on creativity in later life.


Art & Creativity, Language, Memoir

Presented in association with the Copyright Agency through the Cultural Fund

Australian authors Alex Miller, Robert Dessaix and Liz Byrski are very different writers. But they all share one thing in common – an ability to continue to evolve creatively in new and exciting ways as they grow older. They talk with The Australian’s Geordie Williamson about the importance of creativity in later life.
