31 July 2019 - 6:00 to 27 November 2019 - 7:30
Toni Jordan, Wayne MacAuley, Emily Bitto and Favel Parrett
Each month, a notable writer discusses a work that has influenced her/his own writing. More than a book club discussion, Reading for Writers takes an analytical approach to technique in fiction: how it works and how writers have learned and adapted the techniques for use in their own work. Participants are encouraged to read the nominated work before the session and join the ensuing discussion.

- Wayne Macauley on Samuel Beckett’s Malone Dies (Wed Sept 25)
- Emily Bitto on Alan Hollinghurst’s The Line of Beauty (Wed Oct 30)
- Favel Parrett on Per Petterson’s Out Stealing Horses (Wed Nov 27)
