What Inspires Me: Elizabeth Harrower


I went and saw Elizabeth Harrower speak this past weekend at the Melbourne Writers Festival, about her coming back to the land of literature.

Elizabeth is someone I can relate to as she’s aged she speaks the unabated truth, yet retains her passion with writing.  I also love the fact she unapologetically states she didn’t cultivate people or write for others.  To me that is why I love being a writer – for my own need to create and not for others.

Here are a few of her quotes from her talk which resonated with me:

“I had this great need to communicate with people.”
– on why she became a writer.

“If you are going to write it has to matter to you”
– on what you should focus on as a writer
