Debut Mondays

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.
