May: Yvette Walker, Tom Doig, Naomi Armstrong and Kate Belle

When

Our first ever event was a Debut Monday. Three years on, it’s still going strong, introducing new Australian talent each month.

Whether it’s meeting Australia’s latest wunderkind or hearing an unknown quantity strike a bold new path, Debut Mondays is your chance to discover your next favourite author.

You’ll meet a selection of new voices – from Victoria and beyond – including a special guest in each session from Voiceworks magazine.

Pop down to the MOAT, our resident cafe and bar, to grab a drink or a meal – and be nourished and entertained by the pick of our latest storytelling crop.

May’s guests will be Yvette Walker, Tom Doig, Naomi Armstrong and Kate Belle.
