Where do writers get their ideas from?
The guest speaker is Dr Julienne van Loon, Senior Research Fellow with non/fictionLab at RMIT University.
Julienne van Loon will explore obsession, curiosity, friction and play as a means for generating new ideas. She will speak about the long 'in-between', the struggle of making, and the consistent need for openness to new ideas.
Julienne van Loon is an award-winning Australian novelist, short story writer and essayist. Her most recent novel is Harmless (Fremantle Press 2013). She is also a Director on the Board of the Australian Society of Authors.
