Garden Studio - Sam Elkin - Writer + Gemma Cafarella - Potter


Sam Elkin writes.

“…I am a trans masculine writer who is currently working on a memoir about growing up as a trans in Perth, Australia in the 1990's. I am also community lawyer who specialises in LGBTIQ law in St Kilda, and part of my memoir focuses on my current experiences advocating for the rights of the trans and gender diverse community, while transitioning in the workplace.

Over the residency I will develop a series of creative non-fiction short stories that I have already written into a memoir with the working title “Run with the Dogs Tonight”…”

Gemma Cafarella is a potter trained at Northcote Pottery Studios, and will use the time to make some new works.
