About this event

Approaching Facts: Essay, Poetry, Journalism

Our three speakers will reflect on “dealing with facts” through writing practice, and discuss the limits and possibilities of the specific forms in which they write – creative non-fiction, poetry and journalism respectively.

Convened by Jessica Wilkinson, with guest speakers, Delia Falconer, Kent MacCarter and Lisa Waller.

Delia Falconer is senior lecturer at the University of Technology Sydney in the Department of Journalism and Writing. Her research interests focus on creative nonfiction and the Anthropocene. She has published two novels and two nonfiction works and in 2018 won the Walkley-Pascall Award for Arts Criticism. Her most recent book is Signs and Wonders: Dispatches from a Time of Beauty and Loss (2021).

Kent MacCarter is publisher of Cordite Books and managing editor of Cordite Poetry Review. He is author of three poetry collections: In the Hungry Middle of Here (Transit Lounge, 2009), Sputnik’s Cousin (Transit Lounge, 2014) and California Sweet (Five Islands Press, 2018). Kent guest co-edited the poetry for the ‘Reportage’ issue of Rabbit: a journal for nonfiction poetry, released in March 2022.

Professor Lisa Waller is Associate Dean, Communication, in the School of Media and Communication, RMIT University, Australia. She has taught and researched different aspects of Australian news media and journalism since 2006.

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
