Submissions are again open for Memory Makes Us, a live writing event by if:book Australia.
The project is set to make its international debut at the Decatur Book Festival in Georgia, the largest independent book festival in the United States.
On Saturday September 5, Atlanta favourite Randy Osborne will join project alumnus Paddy O'Reilly at the Memory Makes Us marquee in downtown Decatur. They will each write a new work live, their words broadcast on screen at the festival and streamed live to the project web site.
And, to help them write their new piece they need inspiration from you.
Randy is looking for your memories to the theme of hunger. And what are the pangs that drive you most?
Paddy is looking for your memories around the theme of neighbourhood. How has your neighborhood, past or present, shaped who you are?
