The Uni Writers' Festival

In My Voice [Day One: The Uni Writers’ Festival]

By September 16, 2020 No Comments

Day One of the Glass Magazine x UQ PubSoc Uni Writers’ Fest is upon us! After months of planning, chasing down unsuspecting uni creatives and collaborating on some fantastic projects, Glass is happy to finally bring you our dream event: a three day ode to the writers of UQ and QUT. You’ll hear from some of our many creative clubs and socs, many of our talented writers, songwriters and performers, and even our editors. Plus, join us on campus at UQ (Wed) and QUT (Thursday and Friday) for some socially-distanced fun.
Our first artist showcase comes from these four talented QUT writers, sharing pieces prepared in their mother tongues: Bengali, Mandarin, Farsi and Vietnamese. Grab a cup of tea, close your eyes and enjoy our first festival experience.

Persis Lok | (@writingsonawhim)
So tell us, they said. Everyone has a story.
I think of a girl, who dreams of flowers in her hair,  a fashion of passions.
flown across miles of oceans to hold a pen in her hand.

Persis Lok is an aspiring writer and poet from Singapore, who is passionate about the arts scene and media industries. As a Creative Writing student minoring in Journalism and Entertainment, she chose this path of study because she loves rhyme and rhythm, as well as alliteration and revelations. She recently completed her internship with Queensland Magazines and plans to soak up more of what Australia has to offer by exploring new roads and vintage thrift stores.

Cover artist: Katlin Litt | (@katlinlitt)
Katlin Litt is a Brisbane-based multidisciplinary artist in her third year of studying a Bachelor of Fine Art in Visual Art at QUT. Litt works predominately in soft sculptures, photography, and painting. Her work can be viewed as diaristic as it is based on personal experience with body-love, body-loathing, relationships, sexuality, gender, and bodily functions.
