Brows will be lifted…

* New short story of mine in The Lifted Brow 6: Atlas, being launched this Friday! My story ‘Obsolescence’ is a bit of a dark, modern fable set in Bergen, Norway, where my relatives are from. The issue is going to be awesome, with a piece of writing about every country in the world (not […]

Stu Hatton’s Literary Space – Emerging Writers’ Festival Special #3

May 5, 2009 3

Stu Hatton says… Where do I write? Pretty much everywhere. Quite often I’ll be sitting in the study in our apartment. Desk, computer, chaotic piles of paper, the to-do list that never gets done. This is where ‘serious’ writing and editing happens. But I try to get away from the computer as much as I […]

Stephanie Convery says… The picture you see of my study was taken standing at the window looking in. It’s on the detached side of a semi-detached terrace, and the window looks out onto a fence, a gate, a tiny path, a garden bed full of succulents and a lot of sky. It lets in the […]

I do, however, freely and cordially embrace the notion […]

Charlotte Wood, author of The Children says… My writing room is a small room above a shed separate from our house in Marrickville, Sydney (I’m told the shed bit downstairs was once a stable; all I can say is that it must have been a very tiny horse). You can see the iron stair rail […]

Paul Morgan, author of Turner’s Paintbox, The Pelagius Book and The Art of Richard Hughes says: I have no writing room. In fact, I rarely work in the house. I feel too vulnerable to distraction there, knowing that at any moment the phone could ring or someone might knock on the door and my ‘zone’ […]

Literary Space – Damon Young

  Damon Young, author of Distraction, says: My study is actually one corner of our lounge. The room’s also an office for my wife Ruth, entertaining wing, tearoom, and playroom for my three-year-old-son, Nikos. It’s part writerly den, part Lego wonderland. When our new baby’s born, it’ll also be a nursery. And, yes, the pram […]
