Earlier this week, in a Digital Writers Festival Event, Sophie Cunningham spoke to four of the shortlisted writers of The Stella Prize about their work, the prize and raising the profile of women's writing. Here are some highlights., We speak to Adam Alter, author of *Drunk Tank Pink: The Subconscious Forces that Shape How We Think, Feel and Behave*, about loving academia, why it's powerful to get feedback from children on your work, and his advice for aspiring writers: write a letter or an email to 20 of your favourite writers, explaining your aspirations and asking for advice., Sally Rippin's series for primary school age children, *Billie B. Brown* and *Hey Jack!*, are bestsellers with young readers of all reading levels. So she's well equipped to give advice on helping instil a love of reading in reluctant readers. Here are some of her tips - and her story on the genesis of Billie and Jack. and Shakira Hussein reflects on a Queensland childhood frozen in time across several generations, under the era of Joh Bjelke-Petersen - so that David Malouf's reflections of his childhood in the 1930s and 40s evokes memories of her own in the 1970s and 80s.
