Presented by Writing Western Australia (Writing WA)
The year 2020 has been a time of chaos and uncertainty. It began in Australia with raging wildfires and devastating floods. The pandemic followed. In this conversation with Gillian O’Shaughnessy, award-winning Noongar author Kim Scott reflects on what 2020 has meant to him, and why Aboriginal heritage and the natural environment need to be at the centre of national reconstruction. One Voice by Scott is published in Fire Flood Plague (2020), an anthology of essays by Australian writers edited by Sophie Cunningham. The event is hosted by Writing Western Australia, an organisation working between the lines and behind the scenes to build a state of opportunity in Western Australia for writers, publishers and other book industry practitioners.
