Notes

  • 'For ten years the annual National Young Writers' Festival has hosted Australia's brightest writers, performers and literary troublemakers. ... This unique anthology captures the energy and spirit of a decade at the festival.'

    Bringing a semblance of order to a decade of creative chaos, Herding Kites showcases the talents of everyone from unheralded underground mavericks and hot up-and-comers to internationally acclaimed wordsmiths - all writing for the love of the craft and not just the salvation of a cheque.

    Anthologised by Michael Williams, the book includes short stories, poetry, plays, scripts, memoirs, comics, artworks and more. The diversity reflects the ethos of the festival itself by putting writers from different backgrounds and levels of experience on equal footing.
