Write Around the Murray preview, Nick Gadd, Psychogeography, Sunday, June 28, 11am to noon
The region's leading literary festival, Write Around The Murray (WAM), will this year reach audiences via cyberspace but with the usual packed program of fantastic story-telling, engaging discussion points and enthralling conversations. The festival will run from September 9 to 13 but literary fans can get a taste of the action on Sunday, when author Nick Gadd will deliver a presentation on Psychogeography - a discussion on how everyday items in our neighbourhoods can provide the inspiration for amazing stories. Gadd is the author of Death of a Typographer, a crime novel about fonts which he'll discuss as part of WAM in September. Watch the online presentation via the WAM YouTube channel and submit questions via the chat function.

Have you done Netflix, SBS on Demand and iview to death! Do recommend Flack on Foxtel for an entertaining look at a public relations/crisis management firm. Need a new Scandi noir? Check out Danish series DNA (by the same team behind The Killing). It's a "ja" from me!
