Panda Wong’s Online Residency
November 2020

We are very excited to announce that our resident for 2020 is Panda Wong!

This year the residency will be held online due to Covid restrictions. Panda will be working on an online project called whispers from home.

WFH (whispers from home) is a google doc poem that will be updated throughout the length of the residency. It’s an evolving document that will be a way for me to translate an insular experience into something that I can share.

Panda is a poet and editor who lives on unceded land, so-called Melbourne/Narrm. She is an associate editor at The Suburban Review and has been published in Runway Journal, Rabbit, Sick Leave, Liminal, and more. She is also a 2020 Wheeler Centre Hot Desk Fellow.

Incendium Radical Library is currently looking for a new space.

IRL is situated on the land of the Wurundjeri & Bunurong peoples of the Kulin Nation. We stand on this land as beneficiaries of an uncompensated and unreconciled dispossession which began over 200 years ago and continues today.
