Meanjin Winter 2019 edition launch and giveaway
Come along to the launch of the Winter 2019 edition of literary journal Meanjin on Wednesday 19 June and be in the running to win one of three copies of the magazine.
“I've been trying to decide which of my encounters with doctors, the ones from the early days of my illness, was the most mortifying, the most frustrating, the most burdened with assumptions about young women and their bodies and brains ...”
In the lead essay for the Winter issue, titled This Woman is Hysterical, author Fiona Wright argues that it's high time we trusted women to know their own bodies and minds and that “when women speak, is it important to actually listen”.
Wright is an award-winning writer, editor and critic from Sydney. At this event she will be joined in conversation by Clem Bastow, a cultural critic whose work appears regularly in The Saturday Paper and The Guardian.
Names of the three alumni who will win a copy of Meanjin will be drawn from registrations and announced at the end of the event. Registrations are required. For more info on the event and to register, visit: www.alumni.online.unimelb.edu.au/hysterical
