Last Monday evening, the Booked Out team and around 100 students and teachers from all over Melbourne congregated at Library at the Dock to listen to award-winning author Maxine Beneba Clarke speak on her short story collection, Foreign Soil.

Maxine took the us through her writing process and the themes of the text, as well as giving students some creative writing tips for their upcoming SACS. A highlight of the evening was Maxine’s reading of her story Hope, which really brought the text alive for us.

Maxine’s presentation was followed by a Q&A session. It was fantastic to see so many students asking such insightful questions – we found ourselves wishing that the session could last several hours longer in order to get to everyone’s comments!

Thank you to all the students and teachers who attended, and if you missed out, watch this space – Booked Out will be announcing more Twilight Seminar events soon.
