The Book of the Night: White Night Melbourne

As part of White Night Melbourne, watch a book being written in one single night - with the finished work available as an ebook the very next day!

Writers are notorious for working feverishly into the night. The Emerging Writers’ Festival is challenging 12 writers over 12 hours to write 12 chapters in a collective work of fiction titled The Book of the Night. The intrepid writers will be on stage with their writing projected live. Audiences will be encouraged to shape the story by feeding plot points and suggesting characters. The event will be streamed live showcasing a diverse range of writers working across a variety of genres and styles including poets, novelists, short story writers, comic artists and more.

This all night writing space will be open to everyone with a dreamy late night soundtrack challenging authors to stay awake, put pen to paper and create something new.
