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