RMIT students to host Odyssey literary festival

Students from RMIT University’s Professional Writing and Editing program are hosting a literary festival in Melbourne on 6 September.

The Odyssey: Line by Line festival, which was first held in 2016, brings together writers, editors, poets and booklovers ‘for an evening of literary inspiration, debate and entertainment’.

Among the guests participating in this year’s festival are novelists Mark Brandi, Fiona Wood and Yannick Thoraval, editor and bookseller Jo Case, publishing expert Michael Webster, and poets Phillip Hall, Craig Sherborne and Ania Walwicz.

‘We’ll have readings, discussion, debate and performances, and across the night we’ll hear from established writers, editors and poets as they reflect on their influences and careers, and together explore where we are going as a literary community,’ said Yvette Hollings, a representative of the festival’s organising team.

The festival will run from 3.30pm at the Bella Union in Trades Hall. For more information and to book tickets to the free sessions, visit the website here.
