Tomorrow 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.
