Desert Writing: Stories from Country

In September 2013, a group of intrepid writers made their way to three Australian desert settings to develop workshops for groups and individuals wishing to write. Aboriginal people, with a profound connection to country, and other residents, who were more recent arrivals – all who had made the choice to live in remote places – participated in these workshops. This book is a product of the workshops, and it represents new voices and new perspectives on living in the extreme geographical and climactic regions of today’s Australia. Desert Writing: Stories from Country reflects the vitality of remote communities, often isolated, but full of commitment and hope for the future. [Subject: Short-Story Fiction and Non-Fiction, Australian Studies, Aboriginal Studies]
