Vox Bendigo is by, about and for the communities of Central Victoria. An initiative of Bendigo Writers Festival, this was set up as a portal for news and information about writing and reading, as well as a magazine for the publication of new work.
In the words of La Trobe University’s professor emeritus, Robert Manne, there is a cultural revival going on in our region that is reinvigorating both writing and reading.
As the nation outgrows its founding myths about the bush and its relationship to the big cities where most Australians live, the voices from rural places are being heard.
