aural-textTomorrow on Aural Text  (Wednesdays on 3RRR between 12 and 2), Alicia Sometimes and I will be interviewing the NZ hip hop artiste Tourettes, discussing madness and memoir with Sandy Jeffs and hearing Maxine Clarke’s review of the local poetry scene. But we’ll also be talking with RMIT’s Francesca Rendle-Short about how the creative writing program there has developed and, more generally, about what the rise of academic creative writing means for Australian literature. Afterwards, we want to have some talkback and, given the passions that a previous post on creative writing generated here, it would be great to have some blog readers phone in.

    Now, your Wednesdays is my Tuesday… or is that the other way around? Anyway, I know there’s a time difference. But see, my 102.7fm is a Country & Western music station. Soooo, I was wonder if your program will have an Internet feed?

    Oh, I am wearing my PJ’s and it’s 11am. Help me out. Should I set my alarm or just forget about it?
