After Australia – Book Cover Reveal Announcement

We are delighted to announce the book cover reveal of After Australia in partnership with Affirm Press and Sweatshop Literacy Movement. Our work at Diversity Arts has laid the foundations for this important anthology, providing the opportunity for creatives to imagine the future, whether on the page or at the Stories from the Future workshops held across the country.

After Australia, the speculative fiction anthology is now available for pre-order from Affirm Press. Out June 9, 2020:

Climate catastrophe, police brutality, white genocide, totalitarian rule and the erasure of black history provide the backdrop for stories of love, courage and hope.

In this unflinching new anthology, twelve of Australia’s most daring Indigenous writers and writers of colour provide a glimpse of Australia as we head toward the year 2050.

Featuring Ambelin Kwaymullina, Claire G. Coleman, Omar Sakr, Future D. Fidel, Karen Wyld, Khalid Warsame, Kaya Ortiz, Roanna Gonsalves, Sarah Ross, Zoya Patel, Michelle Law and Hannah Donnelly. Edited by Michael Mohammed Ahmad. Original concept / Executive Producer Lena Nahlous.

After Australia brings together some of the best writers, thought-leaders and provocateurs. As an organisation that advocates for cultural equity in the Australian arts sector, it is important that all our work is grounded in art and puts writers and creatives at the forefront. The works put forth by these immensely talented writers could not come at a better time – the urgency of their message is needed now more than ever.
