Sydney Writers’ Festival – All-Day YA panel


Guys, I am doing a panel as part of the Sydney Writers’ Festival All-Day YA program. Big thanks to SWF and also the Stella Schools program for giving me the opportunity. I’m especially thrilled about this because I love my co-panellists: Randa Abdel-Fattah, Alice Pung and Bec Kavanagh.

The Personal is Political

With: Randa Abdel-Fattah, Alice Pung and Bec Kavanagh

The lack of political voice leads to disempowerment, disengagement and disadvantage. In this panel, authors Kirsty Eagar, Randa Abdel-Fattah and Alice Pung offer personal testimony on the politics that affect them. Their testimonies are followed by a panel discussion on the ways marginalised voices are silenced, hosted by Bec Kavanagh. These women are sure to challenge the way we think.

Presented with the Stella Schools Program.

Supported by the City of Parramatta.


Sat 5 May, 1.30PM  – Riverside Theatre, Parramatta
