Tonight on SleepTalker, Magan Magan wanders dark Melbourne streets and finds inspiration for his writing. This episode features three of Magan’s poems: ‘The Thin Line of Loneliness’, ‘Waking Up At Night’ and ‘Moon Street’.
Magan’s working on a poetry collection called ‘Writing Shame Away’. Follow him on Twitter @maganmagan9 to find out when it’s released.
A version of this piece was first heard at ‘Spend the Night With All the Best‘, an Audiocraft/All the Best listening party in Sydney. You can listen to the listening party version (called ‘Unbelonging’) at the All the Best website.
Bec and Magan first met at last year’s National Young Writers’ Festival, where they collaborated on another version of ‘Moon Street’. You can listen to the original in the NYWF All the Best episode here.
