Authors and guests Claire G. Coleman

Claire G. Coleman is a Noongar woman whose family have belonged to the south coast of Western Australia since long before history started being recorded. Claire is an author that the BRWF has been hoping to welcome for years now, and so having the opportunity to showcase her work at the 2022 festival is exciting to say the least. Claire writes fiction, essays, poetry and art writing while either living in Naarm (Melbourne) or while on the road.

Perhaps best known for the prize-winning novel Terra Nullius, her second book The Old Lie is a harrowing speculative-fiction of the ‘glory’ of war, while Claire’s latest release, Lies Damned Lies is a non-fiction journey into the ongoing trauma of Australian colonisation.
