Catch me chatting to Footscray Community Arts Centre’s Vyshnavee Wijekumar about writing, sexting, and fandom ahead of the SMUT: Queer Erotic Fan Fiction Salon this Friday. Listen on Spotify below or find it in your fave podcast platform.
I chatted to NüVoices – an international media collective focused on women and China – about writing, diaspora, and why I’m not necessarily interested in inclusion.
Big thanks to interviewer Annabelle Jarrett for making sense of my late-night ramblings over Zoom and editor Jessie Lau for setting this up!
For Overland, I wrote about how I’m over being the only one in the room, or trying to change things from the inside – and how our media regulations are broken when it’s easier to publish something racist than to call it racist.
I’ve created a spreadsheet of Australian critics in response to the lack of diversity in criticism. You can add yourself via this Google Form.
Hopefully it’s a useful resource for artists, venues, publicists and commissioning editors to access a wider pool of critics. You can view the spreadsheet here. Please share with all your critically-minded mates.
