Panel: Expats Unleashed @ The Asia Pacific Writers Conference, Macau in November.
Nov 6th, 1.30pm.
Writers often seek to venture far from their country of origin – whether that’s out of curiosity, on assignment or sometimes for good. What happens when they do? Three Western writers discuss the interweaving of their writing with their expatriate lives and experiences in Asia particularly in Korea, Shanghai, Indonesia, Thailand and Cambodia – tackling head-on perceptions of their white western privilege alongside their strong desires for cultural exchange and new experience.
Chair: Shelley Kenigsberg
Panelists: Kevin Maher, Adam Narnst, Romi Grossberg
