He’ll talk about writing in Western Sydney, Sweatshop Literacy Movement, and his first fiction publication The Tribe (Giramondo)
Michael Mohammed will also give a quick commentary on super short pieces/extracts of original writing brought by the audience. If you want to toss your latest writing into the pile we’ll draw lots for ten pieces, and see how we go for time. Please bring three copies of your piece and hand in at the door by 2:45 pm. Poetry no more than a page, prose under 500 words.Best to bring something you’re working with now – a piece you’d appreciate some feedback on. You’re also very welcome to come and just listen. There might be time for a short Open Mic (3 mins absolute max). Oh, nearly forgot to mention, Michael Mohammed is our judge for ZineWest 2014!
Entry Fee=$5 (free to NWG financial members)
