Without mentoring, writers and artists can miss out on important networks or opportunities; sometimes, it can be hard to even get a foot in the door. Join Overland‘s editor Jacinda Woodhead; Overland‘s fiction editor and writer Jennifer Mills; and writer, editor and academic Natalie Kon-yu as they discuss the importance of active mentoring in the arts. Resist: Words for the Feminist Activist 3–5pm Sunday 27 May Queen Victoria Women’s Centre, Victoria Room 210 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne Writing has always been a powerful way to challenge and subvert norms. In this session, three prolific activists discuss their work, and how writing and activism work in tandem – as well as sharing how to create real change through words. With Santilla Chingaipe (participating chair), Tarneen Onus-Williams and Asher Wolf. Presented by Overland.
