This year’s lineup at the 2015 Newcastle Writers Festival at Newcastle City Hall will thrill any book lover. A taste of the talent: Helen Garner, Marion Halligan, Favel Parrett, Bob Brown, Michael Robotham, Les Murray, and proudly standing alongside them are locals Claire Dunn, Wendy James, Ed Wright, Jean Kent, Michael Sala, Judy Johnson…
The OPENING NIGHT EVENT is hosted by Caroline Baum. Helen Garner, Jessica Rudd and Michael Robotham will talk about the fascinating topic The Book that Changed Me. This already has me trying to decide which book I’d pick.
The full programme is online at Newcastle Writers Festival.
For anyone wanting to send their writing further than their bottom drawer The Next Level: How to take your writing from hobby to publication – Sunday 22 3pm – shouldn’t be missed. With awards in major competitions and work in a variety of online and print markets, these talented emerging writers have valuable experience and tips to share.
Thank you, Rosemarie Milsom and team, for an exciting programme.
Thanks for sharing this info and mentioning our session Karen! I’ll be around all day Sunday so hope to see you there!
I know your session will be a good one, Jessie. I’ll certainly be there.
Yay! Great to hear 🙂 Our preparations are coming along nicely and we can’t wait to see what type of crowd we get.

Karen Whitelaw has motivated and inspired writers all over Newcastle and here she talks about the Newcastle Writers Festival. One more sleep till opening night!
Great promo for the Newcastle Writers Festival and for our session, too, Karen. Looking forward to tomorrow night’s opening session and all day Sunday.
I’m looking forward to some great sessions, too, Diana. Especially yours!

I began my writing journey as one of Karen Whitelaw’s creative writing students and am still benefiting from her knowledge, experience and special skills as a teacher. I’d like to second her promotion of the Newcastle Writers Festival and especially the free session The Next Level: How to take your writing from hobby to publication.
Thanks, Di. All the best.
I think we are in for an exciting weekend with so much talent coming to Newcastle. I can’t wait for our event, The Next Level which we have been working hard on. Looking forward to catching up with everyone over the weekend.
Not to mention the home-grown talent! Newcastle has produced some incredible writers who are featuring in the festival. It will be an exciting weekend.
