‘Being a writer in Australia is seen as an esoteric thing at best, certainly not a profession, a hobby maybe, and this is the first time I’ll say it and I’ll say it again in the next 40 minutes—Australia doesn’t care about most kinds of artists, but it doesn’t care about writers in particular.’—Maria Tumarkin, in her State of the Writing Nation address, questions the role of the writer in Australian society.
With two days of programming, it will cover a variety of topics, including Women of Colour in publishing and metadata best-practices, with a keynote on resilience and recovery in book publishing post-Covid. The conference will also include the shortlist announcement for the SPN’s inaugural Book of the Year Award, which can be booked separately, for free.
Deep discounts are available for SPN members, students and the unwaged.
