Masters and Slaves takes no prisoners


  • The Small Room Writers Collective delivered an unforgettable performance at the Friends of the Library Masters and Slaves event earlier this month.

The event, held at the Gold Coast campus library on 2 April, lived up to its reputation as a literary calendar must see, as students from the School of Humanities duelled with their literary heroes in a live battle for supremacy.

Performing to a packed library lounge, five students took on a handful of literary greats, before joining the Friends of the Library and other audience members at a cocktail function.

Simon Jun took on JD Salinger, Dean Barker relived a Paul Jennings childhood, Jordan Lawrence tackled a Paul Simon musical number, Colin Gilmore took on classic literary genius Charles Dickens and Adam Narnst adopted a satirical take on the topic, paying homage to a literary genius – himself.

A popular Friends of the Library event, Masters and Slaves will return next year. Keep your eyes peeled!

  1. Good times. Good, nerve wracking, but wine helping times.
