In 2017,he Black Wallaby Indigenous Writers Night will again serve as the launch event for Dreaming Inside - Voices from Junee Correctional Facility, and a celebration of the diversity of Indigenous literature and art. 

The night will be hosted by Nan Seuffert, while Volume Five of Dreaming Inside will be launched by Tony Birch, with readings by Aunty Barbara Nicholson, John Muk Muk Burke, and Friederike Krishnabakdi-Vasilakis. Later in the evening there will be an auction of Aboriginal artworks produced and kindly donated by members of the Junee Correctional Facilities Arts Program. 

The uniqueness of the Black Wallaby Indigenous Writers Group is evidenced by the calibre of the artists it attracts as collaborators. The volume features contributions from Bruce Pascoe, winner of the coveted Miles Franklin literary award in 2016, and Jim Everett, author, playwright and political activist. Both of these men have conducted important work in preserving and reviving Indigenous languages. 

The night will be held at a cost of $5, and all are welcome to attend.
