Genre and gender in our own landscape: from Australian ‘dark weird’ to Tasmanian Gothic fiction with Tansy Rayner Roberts (fantasy novelist, the Creature Court trilogy).

Fantasy author Tansy Rayner Roberts talks about Australian writers who find the horror, fantasy and ‘dark weird’ in the Australian landscape, as well as her own experiences writing about magic, female protagonists and monsters in Tasmanian settings. Her talk will be followed by a Q & A about writing, grant applications and getting published in speculative fiction (horror, science fiction and fantasy).
