Emerging Writers' Festival 2015

For the second year in a row, writers with disability will take over The Salon during the Emerging Writers’ Festival.

This poignant and political event will showcase stories from six emerging writers: Jax Jacki Brown, Carly Findlay, Claire Barnier, David Maney, Nicki Bielinski and Daniel Kirby.

Evolving from fortnightly Write-ability Writers Group sessions for writers with disability, the Write-ability Salon will unearth the sort of unique and powerful stories that usually go untold. The theme for this year’s Write-ability Salon is ‘Untold Stories of Pride’. Hosted by Jax Jacki Brown

The event is made possible by the City of Melbourne arts grants program is presented in collaboration with Arts Access Victoria and the Emerging Writers’ Festival. The Write-ability program is also supported by the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.
