LITERATURE WEEKEND IN THE CITY
2021 Randolph Stow Memorial Lecture
These Poems are Mostly Private Letters
This year’s Randolph Stow Memorial Lecture features hometown superstar Caitlin Maling orchestrating a series of lyrical responses to the iconic Western Australian writer. Focussing on Stow’s poetry and drawing in the voices of a range of Western Australian poets, Caitlin will consider how his rich exploration of the natural world might be brought into context with today’s ecological concerns. Join us for Caitlin's response, with words from John Kinsella, Bron Bateman and Kaya Ortiz.
Presented in association with Westerly Magazine, UWA
