Writers at Work series: Mykaela Saunders on Writing and Possibility
Mykaela Saunders on Writing and Possibility
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 recent DArts candidate and Koori and Lebanese writer, teacher and community researcher Mykaela Saunders and Belinda Castles from the Department of English for a discussion on the possibilities of writing.
Mykaela Saunders is the editor of This All Come Back Now, the world’s first collection of blackfella speculative fiction, forthcoming with UQP in May 2022, and winner of the Elizabeth Jolley Short Story Prize, among several awards for her writing. She is working on a novel and two short story collections.
“In This All Come Back Now, Saunders commits a radical act of subversion, and intellectual sovereignty, by transforming a genre that has defined Western attitudes towards race, colonialism, and technology into a vehicle of First Nations continuance, resilience, and resistance.” – Jeanine Leane
