Curtin Writers Club, in collaboration with PEN Perth, Grok Magazine, Curtin Student Guild International Student Committee and Curtin International Relations Society, present Spotlight on Australia.
Spotlight on Australia is part of PEN Perth’s Spotlight series, which focuses on the contemporary plight of writers, artists and journalists in countries experiencing hardship and how that might affect responsible freedom of expression, media censorship and political interference.
