Writers at Work series: Jamie Marina Lau on Experiment and Play (Part 2)
Writers at Work: Jamie Marina Lau on Experiment and Play (Part 2)
The Writers at Work series invites writers to consider: What kinds of labour are entailed in literary production and publication? What does it mean to describe oneself, or be described, as a writer? Who does a writer work for and what processes produce the literary work as we encounter it?
Join us for a conversation between author and multidisciplinary artist Jamie Marina Lau and Belinda Castles from the Department of English. Jamie will elaborate on the themes of her work and its experimentation across different forms and collaborations.
“Lau’s dizzying prose is like a series of crazy neon-lit performance art.”
