Summary
" In September 2013 just before the weather turned even more intense, a group of intrepid writers made their way to their Australian desert settings to work with groups and individuals wishing to write. Both Aboriginal people with a profound connection to country and residents of more recent arrival who had made the choice to live in remote places participated in workshops. You'll read new voices and hear perspectives on living in extreme geographical and climatic regions in today's Australia. In the variety presented here we welcome you into the vitality of remote communities, often isolated but full of commitment and hope for the future."--Back cover
