I was so excited to be part of this year's #MWF. I contributed to a panel titled 'Asia-Pacific Narratives' which explored how connections between Asia and Australia have influenced writers. The panel was moderated by the writer and academic Angela Savage. My fellow panellists were Rajith Savanadasa (Ruins); Briohny Doyle (The Island Will Sink) and Lawrence Kacambra Ypil (The Highest Hiding Place). They are all excellent people and beautiful writers and I think you should read their work.
