When:Saturday 4 August, 3pm
Are we already living in a dystopia? How do we adjust to rapidly changing social conditions?
Briohny Doyle is the author of the dystopian climate-fiction novel The Island Will Sink and the non-fiction work Adult Fantasy, which looks at defining adulthood in an era of increasing uncertainty and rapid social change. Drawing on TAC’s 2018 annual theme ‘entropy,’ Doyle will discuss the challenges of our current moment and our imminent future and reveal the processes she uses to explore these complex issues in her fiction and non-fiction work.
ACT Writers Centre members are invited to join us for networking drinks from 2pm.
