Episode 32 – 20 March 2019

Editor Louise Swinn and contributors Amy Gray and Monica Dux join Mel Cranenburgh to tell us about their powerful new collection of writing, Choice Words. Including fiction, non-fiction and poetry, the collection explores the dominant narrative and taboos surrounding abortion and gives invaluable insight into how this impacts on Australian women today.

Mel’s then joined by City of Yarra Mayor, Cnr Danae Bosler, and writer and musician Justin Heazlewood (author of Get Up, Mum) to hear about the Fitzroy Writers Festival. (https://library.yarracity.vic.gov.au/fitzroywritersfestival)
