Talking queer, writing queer, seeing queer


Saturday 18 February, 4pm 2017

Sir Paul Reeves Building  Room WG126, AUT, 2 Governor Fitzroy Place, Auckland City
Note: this event took place during the 2017 Auckland Pride Festival. See for the 2018 Festival.

Urzilla Carlson, star of TV3’s 7 Days doesn’t seem to have any troubles there.  She is the author of Rolling with the Punchlines, her moving, self deprecating memoir.

She joins columnist, reviewer and poet David Herkt, and prize-winning author and wit Douglas Lloyd Jenkins, as they talk about writing for a broad audience from a queer perspective.

Michael Giacon, winner of the prestigious 2016 Kathleen Grattan Prize for his poetry sequence Argento in no man land, also joins them.

How does a gay sensibility influence what to say, what to intimate, when to be blatant and when to be silent?  Chaired by Peter Wells.
