Creative Conversations

The China Australia Writing Centre will bring together four engaging panel discussions under the title of ‘Looking Forward/ Looking Back’.  Dr Lucy Dougan, poet and Program Director of CAWC (a collaboration between Curtin University and Fudan University in Shanghai) explained that readers regularly engaged with characters at different stages of life to develop an understanding of what it might mean to feel and be a particular age. “Writers help readers to imagine futures that we are yet to arrive at – or may never arrive at – and imaginative writing can return us to all kinds of pasts,” Dr Dougan said. “The Creative Conversations event works around these perennial points of human experience in a unique cross-cultural dialogue.” Together with presenters Meri Fatin and Geraldine Blake, panelists will explore how Chinese and Australian writers approach problems of positioning, distance and perspective in relation to the past and the future. This year’s panelists include: Ryan Griffen: Created and co-produced both seasons of the television series Cleverman. The series had its premiere at the Berlin Film Festival and is screened on ABC TV in Australia, the BBC in the UK and Sundance TV in the United States. Ryan’s goal in the industry is to bring the rebirth of genre back to Australia, inspired by 1950’s cinema all the way through to the 1980’s genre films.  Ryan wants to tell similar stories to those he was drawn to when growing up. Liz Byrski: The author of nine novels including Gang of Four and The Woman Next Door, and 12 non-fiction books including In Love and War: Nursing Heroes and Remember Me. She is also an Associate Professor in the School of Media, Culture and Creative Arts at Curtin University and is a Senior Fellow of the China Australia Writing Centre. Xia Jia:  A Chinese science fiction author who has been featured in Clarkesworld and Nature. Her story “A Hundred Ghosts Parade Tonight” was nominated for the Short Form Award at the 2013 Science Fiction and Fantasy Translation Awards. She has also won the Chinese Galaxy Award, which is one of the most prestigious science fiction prizes in China. She is an Associate Professor of Chinese Literature at Xi’an Jiaotong University.
