LLCL Seminar and Masterclass - Barbed Wire Fever: How Witnesses and Bystanders Are Shaping a Manuscript

Barbed Wire Fever’s first public event was at The School Seminar, a weekly get together with Monash University’s staff and students in Languages, Literary and Creative Studies, Linguistics and Translation Studies.

About 30 people attended a presentation and Q & A on Barbed Wire Fever and what it means to involve witnesses and bystanders in creating a manuscript. The masterclass afterwards with post graduates in creative writing, languages and literature focused on writing about trauma, writing about families, and writing about historical events in an unconventional way.
