We’ve partnered with one of Melbourne’s oldest institutions to create the Wheeler Centre Zoo Fellowships – a unique opportunity for Melbourne artists to soak up the zoo’s surrounds and create work inspired by the animals and their habitats. In tonight’s showcase, blogger Estelle Tang, fiction writer Cate Kennedy, children’s author Sally Rippin and cartoonist Judy Horacek will share their experiences – and a special taste of their works-in-progress.
Estelle Tang is an editor at Oxford University Press and online editor at Kill Your Darlings.
Cate Kennedy is the author of the highly acclaimed novel The World Beneath, which won the People’s Choice Award in the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards in 2010. She is an award-winning short-story writer whose work has been published widely.
Sally Rippin has had over 50 children’s books published, many of them award-winning, including two novels for young adults. Her most recent books include the popular Billie B. Brown and Hey Jack! series and the children’s novel, Angel Creek, which was published to critical acclaim.
