The Emerging Writers’ Festival is an annual event showcasing the works of new and emerging writers within the Australian literary community. This episode looks at diversity within the festival and the problems faced by authors. This episode also talks about the First Nation and POC writers count coordinated by the Australian Cultural Fund.

We interviewed Georgia ‘Saint Jorge’ Kartas and Manisha Anjali, with an introductory poetry excerpt from Jasmine Waiters during her EWF perfomance.
