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


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.


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.


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.


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.
