Who we are is often tied to where we are. Three writers discuss what draws them to writing about young characters who find themselves out of place. From the dangers of driving into bushfires to the lack of support in regional areas, Felicity Castagna (Girls in Boys’ Cars), Zach Jones (Growing Up in Flames) and Jared Thomas (My Spare Heart) sit down with Sydney Writers’ Festival Youth Curator Litia Taulawakeiaho to share why they have written away from city centres and into the complexities of the coast, bush and country.
