    Is it ever okay for non-Indigenous authors to write about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture?

    It's a question that a panel at the Brisbane Writers Festival explored recently and the issue of authenticity and representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in Australian literature.

    On the panel was Aboriginal author, Melissa Lucashenko whose book, "Mullumbimby" won the Fiction Book of the Year at the recent Queensland Literary Awards. Non-Indigenous writer Jacqueline Wright who has spent many years as a teacher and linguist in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. Jacqueline's novel "Red Dirt Talking" was long listed for this year's Miles Franklin Award.

    The panel was chaired by Aboriginal author and social commentator, Dr Anita Heiss.
