Staff and students from the school of Media Film and Journalism have been heavily involved with the Melbourne Writers Festival.
Writer and PhD in Journalism student Tom Doig’s session focused on what writers and artists can do to highlight environmental concerns.
Tom was also part of a panel called Funemployed looking at the ups and downs of life as an artist, and in the first week of September he reflects on wanderlust in a Writers Victoria event called Other Places.
Communications and media studies lecturer Tony Moore (author of Dancing With Empty Pockets) co-led a tour of Melbourne’s bohemian writer haunts while award winning author and journalist Steve Lillebuen, who is completing his PhD in Journalism at Monash, chaired a panel on long-form storytelling.
Sixteen Monash journalism students from Honours and the unit Reporting Art & Culture, and their lecturers John Tebbutt and Andrea Baker were in the audience of the ABC TV’s Melbourne Writers Festival edition of the Q and A program, titled Team Australia, Terror and Tinderboxes.
This episode of the program featured political journalist and author Paul Kelly, author Elizabeth Pisani, former Foreign Minister and author Gareth Evans, and Iranian Australian novelist Ali Alizadeh.
