Not one, but two, but


THREE! That’s three WrICE Selfies from our intrepid adventurers who are currently in town for the Melbourne Writers Festival.

Today, we’re featuring Lawrence Labambra Ypil,  poet and essayist from Cebu, Philippines; Peter Clynes, current student of creative writing and Mandarin at RMIT; and Maggie Tiojakin, Indonesian writer, journalist and translator.

Each writer has a unique story to tell in their work, but their experiences of WrICE share an enthusiasm for practice, a gratitude and care in the space afforded by the program, and are a great teaser for today’s event:

Asia Pacific Narratives, 5.30pm ACMI the Cube

What does it mean to live in the Asia Pacific in a literary context? Join Briohny Doyle, Cath Ferla, Lawrence Lacambra Ypil and Rajith Savanadasa as they discuss how connections between Asia and Australia – including proximity, travel and migration – have influenced their narratives and voices in writing.
