Amal Awad, Eliza Hull and Jock Serong are the guest writers for what will be our fifth visit to the Write Around the Murray festival in Albury.

We’ll be at the lovely Albury LibraryMuseum on Saturday evening, 17 September.

Amal, author The Things We See in the Light, and Eliza, musician, disability advocate, and editor of We’ve Got This, will be making their first Stereo Stories appearances, while Port Fairy novelist Jock, author of The Settlement trilogy, has just about become part of the furniture: well, a regular member of our ensemble.

Melbourne writer Rijn Collins will be joining us too. Rijn, author of the micro-memoir Voice, has presented stories at our previous four Albury gigs (and many other shows) and couldn’t resist the temptation to hop onboard the Stereo Stories train again.

Amal Awad’s Stereo Story features a Cranberries song. But which one?


Eliza Hull’s Stereo Story riffs on an Etta James tune. So many to choose from.
