August 23rd 2013: I caught up with Ali Cobby Eckermann at the Melbourne Writers’ Festival and spoke to her after a panel of indigenous writers, including Tony Birch, discussed the state of indigenous writing and the newly inaugurated First Nations Australian Writers’ Network.
Eckerman has enjoyed great success with her poetry, her first verse novel, ‘His Father’s Eyes’, which was published in 2011 by Oxford University Press and then her second verse novel, ‘Ruby Moonlight’, published by Magabala Books which won the 2013 NSW Premier’s Literary Awards and her much-anticipated memoir ‘Too Afraid to Cry’ has just been published by Ilura Press.
