This event has passed Get Tickets

Event description

Did you know that the Spitfire Aeroplane was named after a woman? 

Strong feisty women have always positively influenced the world around us and yet words for strong women are usually derogatory. Judy Lattas will be the convenor of a panel of some of Australia's most popular authors; Melissa Lucashenko, Donna M Cameron, Mirandi Riwoe and Michelle Upton as they discuss writing strong women in fiction, what inspires them, and how people perceive their creations.
