MELT Festival

Some of Australia’s finest queer writers join in conversation to discuss their recent works and more as part of Writers+Ideas.

Planting seeds of inspiration and sharing their own personal stories, this joyously devious, honest and raw event will be a highlight of MELT 2021.

Hosted by Claire Christian, the lineup will include musician and compelling author Holly Throsby, Holden Sheppard* discussing his highly acclaimed young adult novel Invisible Boys and Ellen van Neervan, poet and local Mununjali author.

Storytelling at its finest!

*Holden Sheppard will be appearing at the event via live video link.

We acknowledge the Jagera/Turrbal peoples, the First Nation Traditional Owners of the land on which we gather. We pay respects to all Elders past and present and acknowledge the young leaders who are working beside our Elders in our cultural industries. We recognise all First Nation peoples as the original storytellers of these lands and acknowledge the important role they continue to play in our community.
