Each month at the Wheeler Centre, two writers discuss the points of difference and the common experiences of a creative life. Caught between being a ‘writer’ and a writer, Amy Espeseth and Peggy Frew compare journeys down the road to publication.
Peggy Frew's first novel, House of Sticks, won the Victorian Premier's Literary Award for an Unpublished Manuscript by an Emerging Victorian Writer, and was shortlisted for the UTS Glenda Adams Prize for New Writing. Hope Farm, her second novel, won the Barbara Jefferis Award, was shortlisted for the Stella Prize and the Miles Franklin Literary Award, and longlisted for the International Dublin Literary Award.
Amy Espeseth’s first novel, Sufficient Grace, was awarded the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an unpublished manuscript in 2009 and was published by Scribe in September 2012. An extract from her second novel, Trouble Telling the Weather, won the QUT Postgraduate Creative Writing Prize in 2010.
Each month at the Wheeler Centre, two writers discuss the points of difference and the common experiences of a creative life. From playwrights to poets, from award-winners to emerging talent, the Victorian Writers’ Centre and the Wheeler Centre join forces to explore what aspects of being a writer are universal and which ones are unique.
