Crime Fiction author Karen Herbert (Vertigo), YA author Seth Malacari (An Unexpected Party) and journalist Niki Savva (Bulldozed) debate the realities of working in different literary genres and dissect who gets to speak and why in contemporary culture.
Niki Savva is one of the most senior correspondents in the Canberra Press Gallery. She was twice political correspondent for The Australian, and headed up the Canberra bureaus of both The Herald Sun and The Age. When family tragedy forced a career change, she became Peter Costello’s press secretary for six years and was then on John Howard’s staff for three. Her work has brought her into intimate contact with Australia’s major political players for more than 40 years. She is a regular columnist for The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald, and often appears on ABC TV’s Insiders.
