The Emerging Writers Festival and Melbourne, a city of literature?

Last week I was a (virtual) guest of the Emerging Writers Festival in Melbourne. (Lucky for me since I'm currently in London and it would have been difficult to be there any other way.) This year the festival is really expanding its digital component and as a part of that myself and Daniel Wood were asked to pen a few thoughts about what is happening to Melbourne as a City of Literature. As part of an ongoing project with Kirsten Seale at RMIT we've been considering how the 'City of Literature' could engage more directly with the city itself. You can read on, here. And be sure to go through all the way to the comments where you'll find a bunch of great thoughts, proposals and provocations...
