"To paraphrase Junot Diaz, it is ok to feel lost," says tutor Omar Musa. "If you don't feel lost, then you're probably in discovered territory. As a writer, you want to be in the lands unmapped."

Omar Musa is a Malaysian-Australian author, rapper and poet from Queanbeyan, Australia. His debut novel ‘Here Come the Dogs’ was long-listed for the International Dublin Literary Award and the Miles Franklin Award. He was named one of the Sydney Morning Herald’s Young Novelists of the Year in 2015.

Omar will be teaching workshops on Poetry and Power and Performance Poetry in October 2017.
