Come and join Griffith Review at the Perth Writers Festival 2015 as we discuss creativity on the periphery, truth and fiction, optimism versus pessimism, and anthologies.

Looking West: Art and innovation on the Periphery
20 February 2015, Perth Writers Festival 2015
11.30–12.30 pm, Romeo Tent, UWA - Free Event.

Is the periphery an artistic frontier or an isolated outpost? Does distance from cultural capitals cause a creative vacuum, or do dislocation and invisibility lead to creative freedom? Can great art be made in the regions? Join Brooke Davis, Amanda Curtin, Peter Newman and Julianne Schultz.

Optimism vs Pessimism
21 February 2015, Perth Writers Festival 2015
11.30–12.30 pm, Octagon Theatre, UWA - Ticketed event.

Are we generally optimistic or we tending more and more towards pessimism? Despite the current state of environmental and political affairs Bob Brown seems firmly in the positive camp, while having just completed a book on the influence of original sin in Western thought, James Boyce knows how enduring and pervasive is a more pessimistic understanding of human capacity. They share their views with Julianne Schultz.

Truth and Fiction
21 February 2015, Perth Writers Festival 2015
5.30–6.30 pm, Dolphin Theatre, UWA - Ticketed event.

Is there a left brain-right brain shift that needs to occur when moving between writing non-fiction and fiction? Two writers who have made the transition look easy are John Lanchester and Hugh Mackay. They talk to Julianne Schultz about the process of moving from one genre to the other.

Anthologies That Make Your Heart Sing
22 February 2015, Perth Writers Festival 2015
11.30–12.30, Woolnough Lecture Theatre, UWA - Free event.

A discussion that explores the creativity and talent of editors and writers who bring disparate works together and offer them to the world in one book, with Donna Ward, Maxine Beneba Clarke, Julianne Schultz and William Yeoman.
