A panel of local experts, including Bodie Hartley, Campbell Whyte, Soolagna M. and Sarah Winifred Searle, address how the graphic novel form holds a unique place in the realm of written work and how literary communities help to benefit the form.
Keeping with our Eco-Futures theme, the panel will also discuss how graphic novels/comics have the potential to change public opinion on how a person interacts with their environment and the people they share it with.
WHEN: Tuesday 11 April, 4.30 – 5.30pm
WHERE: Centre for Stories
ABOUT THE LITERARY YOUTH FESTIVAL (LYF)
The Literary Youth Festival (LYF) is the first youth-led festival of literature in Western Australia, run by young people in the Literary Youth Festival Planning Subcommittee of National Youth Week.
LYF seeks to raise the voices of young poets, bloggers, playwrights, graphic novelists, novelists and performers. LYF is about creating more opportunities for young aspiring writers nourishing of a literary movement in WA.
This initiative, like many literary ventures in WA, would not be possible without the tireless work of people within the literary community – along with organisations such as WritingWA, The Centre for Stories and Spoken Word Perth – all of whom are constantly making magic happen in the sometimes literal but always literary sense.
