Arnold Zable will explore the inspirations, literary influences, sources of ideas, and practical lessons learnt in confronting the empty page.

Drawing on three decades as a writer of fiction and non-fiction, ranging from short story and features, to novels and memoir, Zable will explore the inspirations, literary influences, sources of ideas, and practical lessons learnt in confronting the empty page, and bringing many works to fruition. The journey has led to an understanding of the humanising power of story, how to give voice to oneself, how to inspire others to find their voice, and the role of story in public advocacy and affecting change.

This event is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria and presented in associated with Writers Victoria.
