Brisbane-based writer Krissy Kneen considers the intersection between Picasso's 'Vollard Suite' and her own body of work through intimate readings from Affection, Triptych, and her yet to be published collection of poetry, interspersed with passages from Ovid's Metamorphosis and Picasso's poetry.

Following the readings, take the opportunity to present your own work in a fifteen-minute open mic. If you are interested in participating, bring along one piece of work that intersects with themes of love, sexuality, violence, taboo or desire to a maximum of three minutes in length, and sign up at the beginning of the evening.

Krissy Kneen is the award winning author of the memoir Affection, the novels Steeplechase, Triptych, The Adventures of Holly White and the Incredible Sex Machine, An Uncertain Grace, and the Thomas Shapcott Award winning poetry collection Eating My Grandmother. She has written and directed broadcast documentaries for SBS and ABC television.
