Debut Mondays


The first event ever to run at the Wheeler Centre was a Debut Mondays session, and two years
on we’re just as committed 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 discover some great new writing.
Each month we’ll introduce you to a selection of new voices from across Victoria and beyond,
including a special guest in every session from Voiceworks magazine.

This year Debut Mondays has moved to the Wheeler Centre’s new cafe/bar the MOAT. So pop in, grab a drink and enjoy the stories.

With Ruby Murray, Lisa Jacobson, Madeleine Griffeth and The Australian/Vogel’s Literary Award Winner 2012, Paul D. Carter.
