Writing Our Melbourne was developed by the Melbourne UNESCO City of Literature especially for JLF Melbourne. JLF Melbourne is held in collaboration with Melbourne Writers Festival, Teamwork Arts and Fed Square, supported by the Sidney Myer Fund and Arts Centre Melbourne for Asia TOPA. http://mwf.com.au/jlf-melbourne/
Using the MWF partnership with Jaipur as inspiration, the Melbourne UNESCO City of Literature Office has commissioned an Editor and three expat Indian writers to develop three narratives about Melbourne responding to the catalyst “What makes my City?”
Each story is location responsive with two stories being linear and one being a choose your own adventure style narrative. This story will branch off into dozens of different locations around the city (all within walking distance) and which ones the reader visits will depend on the path they pick through the adventure.
Writing our Melbourne teams editor Meelee Soorkia with three Indian expat writers, Aparna Ananthuni, Rashmi Patel, and Chetna Prakash to examine there question, “What is our Melbourne!”
Enjoy this locative literature experience from JLF Melbourne!
