KYD’s Northern Territory Showcase


Kill Your Darlings


From the Top End to the Red Centre, our latest state & territory showcase features brilliant new writing from Territorians writing from and about their home

Culture


An Uplifting Obsession


Jane Howard


Members: A podcast dedicated to the humble escalator might sound like a niche interest, but People Movers offers a charming and self-deprecating look at both the unsung heroes of our cities and the infectious joy of sharing a common passion.

Culture


Bad Medicine


Lauren Carroll Harris


Members: Shot entirely on an iPhone, Steven Soderbergh’s Unsane couples the American auteur’s interest in pushing genre boundaries and his obsession with paranoid individuals resisting oppressive institutions.

Books & Publishing


KYD First Book Club


Kill Your Darlings


Our May First Book Club pick is Julia Prendergast’s The Earth Does Not Get Fat, a powerful and gut-wrenching debut about intense suffering and fierce, searing love.

Culture


Auction Hero


Sam Twyford-Moore


Russell Crowe’s ‘The Art of Divorce’ auction proved an oddball retrospective of the actor’s career, inviting dollar values to be placed on his legacy – and for many in the room, it felt like a very real part of the idea of ‘Australianness’ was on sale too.

Commentary


Is studying writing worth it?


Samantha Forge


While a fulfilling and effective way to build one’s craft, a recent report on the financial realities of arts practitioners shows how for many, making art is increasingly at odds with making money.

New Fiction


The House


Myfanwy McDonald


The house by the ocean is old but spacious, the perfect place to escape the city and build new memories. But some of the house’s old memories aren’t quite ready to be given up.
