"BURN Writers Collective present TTYN: The Writer is Not Invisible, a night of readings, spoken word performances and multimedia that explore what it means to be a writer today.
In the recent telecast of the Academy Awards ceremony, broadcaster Channel 9 decided to omit the awards for Best Screenplay and Best Adapted Screenplay from the prime time slot. It begs the question: are writers really that invisible? While narratives and stories underpin most popular culture production, the writer often remains absent and relatively nameless.
In an age where the mouthpieces outrank the mouths the Brisbane-based BURN Writers Collective have rallied to the cause. Join them as they descend from their mythical garrets and take centre stage at State Library of Queensland, debunking the idea that writers should remain read and never seen or heard.
In collaboration with digital artists, film makers and designers, writers from the BURN Collective revolt against enduring notions of the writer and revel in a series of multimedia enhanced self-portraits which explore the writer at work, the writer at play, and the writer in life.
The night will also feature special guests from the Australian Poetry Slam and the State Library of Queensland Young Writers Award."
