Indigenous storytelling is an important part of our literary culture and we have a number of guest authors who have written from and about the Indigenous experience in Australia. Whether it’s illustrated books for children, the strange but enticing world of Indigenous spec-fic, a debut ‘Koori noir’ novel, poetry, politics and more, there are plenty of sessions here to enjoy and to get you thinking.
