September: Amy Espeseth, Courtney Collins, Amy Choi and Broede Carmody


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 /restaurant, The MOAT. So pop in, grab a drink and enjoy the stories.

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
