The Wheeler Centre’s Next Chapter writers’ scheme is changing the landscape of Australian publishing, providing a foot in the door for writers who have historically been overlooked by the industry. In this panel discussion, published previous recipients and current participants in The Next Chapter – including Jumaana Abdu, Luke Patterson, Josie/Jocelyn Deane and Ennis Cehic – explore the ways contemporary emerging writers are making the most of opportunities to break down barriers and challenge the conventions of traditional Australian publishing. Hosted by Fiona Wright.

Presented with the Wheeler Centre.
