Read.. Read.. Read: Emily Perkins
Emily Perkins gives an advisory statement to the writers facing writer`s block: "Read, read, read, and aim small to finish one story and one page." The role of emotions, the process of mentoring creative writers, the idea of identity within New Zealand, the role of artificial intelligence in literature, and rewriting history were the topics of the conversation.
For Emily, New Zealand is a strong country and also a country with a colonial legacy. Priya K. Nair asked questions about publishing as well as creative writing. The importance of focusing on the work and the possibility of social media publishing were also discussed.
