Mark Smith

Mark Smith

Mark Smith lives on Victoria’s Surf Coast, where he writes novels and stories, and runs outdoor-education programs for young adults. His second novel, Wilder Country, won the 2018 Indie Book Award for Young Adults.

(Note this is a very short bio for mark!  Feel like he’s selling himself short!)

Jock Serong


Jock Serong’s novels have received the Ned Kelly Award for First Fiction, the Colin Roderick Award and the inaugural Staunch Prize (UK). He lives with his family on Victoria’s far west coast.  Jock’s latest novel The Burning Island will be released on 1 September 2020.

(Also a very short under-selling bio!)

The Conversations with Friends series is supported by the City of Melbourne COVID-19 Arts Grants.
