In this episode, Julia is joined by Wiradjuri woman and acclaimed Australian author, Tara June Winch. Tara’s incredible 2019 novel, The Yield, earned critical recognition, including the Prime Minister’s Literary Award for fiction, the Christina Stead Prize for Fiction, and the Miles Franklin Literary Award.

Julia and Tara discuss the power of storytelling to give voice to underrepresented communities, and why we need to rethink the literary canon to make space for more diverse voices.

Tara also shares the incredible and unlikely story of how she became an author; and how she went from not completing high school to having her first novel on the school curriculum studied across Australian classrooms.
