Jini Maxwell: The Wild Courage of Despair

Jini Maxwell: The Wild Courage of Despair

One of our 2018 Writers-in-Residence shares their reflection on Ensemble Sacamano's musical re-telling of Edgar Allen Poe’s 'Masque of Red Death'.

Last year Melbourne Recital Centre launched its inaugural Writer-in-Residence program, welcoming Australian author and journalist Chloe Hooper who shared her thoughts and responses to a range of events at the Centre and curated in-depth interviews with artists including Paul Grabowsky and Pieter Wispelwey. This year, we are partnering with the Emerging Writers Festival and introduce three diverse female writers on the rise who are already making their mark on Australia’s literary landscape.

Jini Maxwell is a lyrical writer of poetry and non-fiction, who crafts illustrated criticism presented in the digital format of hypertext (which allows cross-referencing between related sections of text and graphics) like a 'choose your own adventure' through hyperlinks.
