Championing the words that matter today

About the Centre

We want to make The University of Queensland the best place in Australia to become a writer or to think critically about writing that makes a difference in the world.

Join the Centre for Critical and Creative Writing (CCCW) for a thought provoking conversation between UQ's own Associate Professor Stephen Carleton and acclaimed Australian author, Jennifer Down, as they discuss what recovery in the arts means to them.
