In the third episode in the Place season of Elements, Pip Adam talks to Rose Lu about place and what it is to write it. 

All Who Live on Islands by Rose Lu which is published by VUP https://vup.victoria.ac.nz/all-who-live-on-islands/

The Radio New Zealand adaptation of Rose's book All Who Live on Islands https://www.rnz.co.nz/collections/readings/all-who-live-on-islands-by-rose-lu

The Kāpiti Writers Retreat run by Writers Practice https://writerspractice.nz/

I talk about 'an artist' - that artist is the amazing Julian Oliver. The lecture I am talking about is this one from 2017 "TX/RX: Spectrum and the City" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9UIEnxlw5k&t=429s

Exercise:

What does it feel like to use an object to write about place. Look around, pick up the first you-sized object you see. Now write about place through this object. Perhaps start with the sentence, 'I am in the [object name]...'.
