Wordcraft To Visit Australia


In September, Wordcraft Circle National Director Lee Francis IV, had the distinct honor of meeting a number of Australian First Nations writers who were visiting the United States as featured guests of the National Book Festival in Washington DC.  

After a number of incredible conversations with the First Nations Australian Writers' Network, Dr. Francis IV and Wordcraft Circle will have the chance to continue the relationship in Australia this February.  Over 16 days, Dr. Francis will visit Melbourne, Darwin, Adeliade, and Sydney and have the opportunity to meet a number of Australian First Nations Writers and Indigenous community members during the trip.

The visit will also allow Wordcraft and FNAWN to develop several joint projects that will feature collaborations between US and Australian Indigenous writers and storytellers.
