Joining us this month on the global theme of ‘Nature’ we have The Sydney Morning Herald’s Best Young Australian Novelist for 2020 and author of ‘Constant Hum’, Alice Bishop.

Join Alice as she chats about writing the landscape you love, bushfire and the importance of storytelling—both during and after disaster.
