Meet the Remote Indigenous Community Where a Few Thousand People Use 15 Different Languages, Jill Vaughan , 2018 single work column

'On Australia’s remote north-central coast, the small community of Maningrida is remarkable for many reasons. It boasts dramatic coastal scenery, world-renowned bark and sculptural artists, skilled weavers and textile printers, and unique local wildlife. But Maningrida is extraordinary for another reason: it is one of the most linguistically diverse communities in the world, with 15 languages spoken or signed every day among only a couple of thousand people.' (Introduction)

Gerald Murnane’s Prime Minister’s Literary Award Is Long Overdue, Anthony Uhlmann , 2018 single work column

'I first came to Border Districts through a brief description of it given to me by Gerald Murnane when I first met him three years ago. I thought he had told me that he did not think it was as complex as another work he wrote around the same time, A Million Windows.' (Introduction)
