SA Writers Centre are getting quick and dirty in a graveyard this week.

At West Terrace Cemetery 30 October at 6.30pm, an evening of the uncanny and unnerving will take place, getting a head start on Halloween featuring well known local writers like Sean Williams, Rachel Mead, Colin Varney.

Quick & Dirty is SA Writers Centre’s monthly themed sessions of short, unpublished and raw live readings performed by South Australian writers.

These lively events help showcase and unearth some of our local talent and provide an opportunity for people to read their work to a live audience

For October’s event, SA Writers Centre have teamed up with the Adelaide Cemeteries Authority to host Quick and Dirty: Grave Matters to diversify the cemetery space and inspire writers in a unique environment.

Chief Executive Officer of Adelaide Cemeteries Authority says these type of partnerships are a part of a greater scheme to develop the role of cemeteries in our community.

“This event forms a small part of a broader partnership between the Adelaide Cemeteries Authority and SA Writers Centre that will look more broadly at the evolving role of cemeteries in society and their importance to the broader community” he Mr Pitt says.

“Such initiatives are designed to challenge people’s thinking and ideas in relation to their own mortality and the idea of memory and memorialisation.”
