In the third episode in the Place season of Elements, I talk to Rose Lu about place and what it is to write it.
Some of the things we talk about are:
All Who Live on Islands by Rose Lu which is published by VUP https://vup.victoria.ac.nz/all-who-live-on-islands/
The Radio New Zealand adaptation of Rose’s book All Who Live on Islands https://www.rnz.co.nz/collections/readings/all-who-live-on-islands-by-rose-lu
The Kāpiti Writers Retreat run by Writers Practice https://writerspractice.nz/
I talk about ‘an artist’ – that artist is the amazing Julian Oliver. The lecture I am talking about is this one from 2017 “TX/RX: Spectrum and the City” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9UIEnxlw5k&t=429s
What does it feel like to use an object to write about place. Look around, pick up the first you-sized object you see. Now write about place through this object. Perhaps start with the sentence, ‘I am in the [object name]…’.
