Our first ever event was a Debut Monday. Three years on, it’s still going strong, introducing new Australian talent each month.
Whether it’s meeting Australia’s latest wunderkind or hearing an unknown quantity strike a bold new path, Debut Mondays is your chance to discover your next favourite author.
You’ll meet a selection of new voices – from Victoria and beyond – each month, including a special guest in each session from Voiceworks magazine.
Pop down to The Moat, our resident cafe and bar, to grab a drink or a meal – and be nourished and entertained by the pick of our latest storytelling crop.
If you plan on making a night out of it, The MOAT offers a pre-event package from 5pm to 6pm: $20 for a meal and a glass of wine, or $15 for a pizza and a glass of wine or beer. Bookings essential; call (03) 9094 7820 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
