Writer Talk with Jacqueline Brady
Meet our Alice Springs hot desk writer
Thursday, 22 March
67 Bath St
Jacqueline Brady is the NT Writers’ Centre hot desk writer between October 2017 – Feb 2018, during which time she is working on completing a first round of edits of her manuscript White Fence with input from Hachette mentor, Sophie Hamley.
Join us for a drink, a reading from her manuscript-in-development and some Q&A about the writing process.
Jacqui is an Alice Springs-based anthropologist. She works as an advocate, policy and project manager in the non-government sector for local disadvantaged youth.
White Fence is a work of historical fiction set in the desert regions of Australia. The book stems from her work as an anthropologist and from a period of recovery from a neurological and musculoskeletal decompression illness she developed while working as a scuba diver instructor in the early 1990s.
Expressions of interest for the next writer hot desk, 20 February 2018 – 20 May, will open in January 2018.
