Anyway, Simonne’s post below: The Overland Master Class for Progressive Writers, conceived and facilitated by Overland Associate Editor, Rjurik Davidson was as inspiring as it was constructive. We were blessed, not only by Rjurik’s witty wisdoms, but those of prominent industry professionals, Tony Birch, Cate Kennedy, and Lucy Sussex. Let me introduce the nine writers in the class: Alec Patric, Angela Meyer, Maxine Beneba Clarke, Ilia Rosli, Warwick Sprawson,Daan Spijer, Koraly Dmitriadis, David Azul, and me. Read the rest here.
