The very first event to run at the Wheeler Centre was a Debut Mondays session – and two years on, we’re as committed as ever to fostering new talent.
Whether it’s meeting Australian literature’s newest wunderkind or hearing a known quantity strike a bold new path, Debut Mondays is your chance to be part of the literary avant-garde.
Each month in the brand new Moat Bar and Café at the Wheeler Centre, we’ll introduce you to a special selection of new voices from across Victoria and beyond, including a special guest in every session from Voiceworks magazine.
This month, meet Romy Ash, Bruce Scates, Ailsa Piper and Oliver Mol.
Romy Ash is a Melbourne-based writer.
Ailsa Piper has worked throughout Australia as a playwright, theatre director, actor, teacher, speaker and pate-wrapper.
Professor Bruce Scates has lectured in history in both Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand.
Oliver Mol is a Melbourne based writer. His short stories have been published in numerous journals including Voiceworks, Stilts Journal and Offset Journal. He is currently working on his debut novella.
