In this episode, you will meet Tara June Winch, The Arts Awardee in the Global Australian Awards 2022.
Wiradjuri author, Tara June Winch, is one of the greats of contemporary Australian literature. Through her writing, she tells the stories of characters forced to live at the margins, compelling readers to understand the complexity of life for those who society has rejected, ignored and abused. Through Ms Winch’s cast of critically-acclaimed novels and short stories, she has brought to light the lived experiences of Indigenous Australians of multiple generations, and at the same time, created a vehicle for the savouring and sharing of Aboriginal culture and language on a global stage.
During this episode, Ms Winch shares her personal journey to becoming a published novelist at a young age, and what the art and business of writing looks like day to day for her. She also speaks about bringing to light the lived experiences of Indigenous Australians to her readers, looking to move them to respond beyond the page. This interview is powerful, informative and inspiring.
