The very first event to run at the Wheeler Centre was a Debut Mondays session – and two years on, we’re as committed as ever to fostering new talent.
Whether it’s meeting Australian literature’s newest wunderkind or hearing a known quantity strike a bold new path, Debut Mondays is your chance to be part of the literary avant-garde.
Each month in the brand new Moat Bar and Café at the Wheeler Centre, we’ll introduce you to a special selection of new voices from across Victoria and beyond, including a special guest in every session from Voiceworks magazine.
This month, meet Romy Ash, Bruce Scates, Ailsa Piper and Oliver Mol.
Ailsa Piper has worked throughout Australia as a playwright, theatre director, actor, teacher, speaker and pate-wrapper.
Romy Ash is a Melbourne-based writer. Her first novel Floundering was long-listed for the Miles Franklin Award. She is a writer of fiction and non-fiction. She has been anthologised in Best Australian Stories and Best Australian Essays.
Professor Bruce Scates has lectured in history in both Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand.
Oliver Mol is a Sydney-based writer. He is a staff writer at The Adventure Handbook. He is 26. He grew up between America and Australia.
Readers are spoilt for choice: bookshops are overflowing with the great, the good (and the rest), and it could not be harder to choose what to read next.
Let Debut Mondays be your guide to the best of new local writing. Come and have a glass of wine and discover the best new writers around.
