QPF2017 Distant Voices presents an in-conversation with a pair of writers who have created two of the most exciting memoirs of recent times. Join viral poet and bestselling memoirist Patricia Lockwood (USA), author of Priestdaddy, and acclaimed Australian poet and editor Brentley Frazer, author of Scoundrel Days, as they discuss transcending adolescence and their religious upbringings, the devils and desires that drive us, and how they brought a poet’s eye to their own backstories. Hosted by the Director of the Rock and Roll Writers Festival, Leanne de Souza.
