Writing the Future

RMIT Culture Literature & Ideas Salon

Explore the expansive possibilities of literature.

In response to recent announcements from the Victorian Government regarding restrictions, this event has been postponed. Please keep an eye on this listing page and our socials @thecapitolrmit for updates.

In this intimate Salon event speculative fiction writers Kate Mildenhall (Skylarking, The Mother Fault) and Eugen Bacon (Writing Speculative Fiction) explore the expansive possibilities of literature in the context of our rapidly changing world with RMIT’s Rose Michael (The Asking Game, The Art of Navigation). Together, they will discuss how non-realist writing has the potential to imagine other worlds and other realities and to better understand our own.

This RMIT Culture Literature & Ideas Salon celebrates the inaugural Speculate Prize, presented in partnership with Giramondo Publishing and RMIT Writing & Publishing, sponsored by Whispir and supported by the Speculate Literary Festival.
