Debut Mondays


Event Status

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.

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.

July’s guests are Peter Twohig, Andrew Grimes, Kim Haworth and Nicki Reed.

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. Bookings essential; call (03) 9094 7820 or email
