Like many literary arts organisations, Spineless Wonders is saddened by the cancellation of upcoming events such as the Newcastle and Sydney Writers Festivals due to the threats such gatherings pose to the spread of coronavirus. We are disappointed that we will be unable to participate in the planned panel discussions, to stage our #storybombing events and live performances. But we fully support these important measures taken by the organisers and sympathise with them and all of the other arts workers impacted by the cancellations. At Spineless Wonders, we also know that art and culture are crucial to a healthy society, so that’s why we have created Infectious Fiction, to do our bit to ensure that contemporary Australian culture is not lost in these pandemic times by providing a daily dose of great Australian stories to innoculate against the boredom of enforced isolation.
What is Infectious Fiction?
Each day we will be delivering the world to you in the form of short audio stories under 5 minutes in length. Narrated by actors at some of our recent live events or recorded in studio by some of authors, these stories are drawn from our annual microlit anthologies. Infectious Fictions will be posted daily at 8am AEST via this blog feed.
