April 6-8, 2018
Newcastle Writers Festival is becoming one of the most dynamic and friendly festivals in Australia for both writers and readers. It attracts big names in the world of writing and ideas: Robert Drewe, Jimmy Barnes, Kitty Flanagan, Michael Rowbotham, Robert Dessaix, Michael Sala, Tracey Spicer, to name just a few. Full program is available here.
One of the most popular sessions each year is run by a local writing group, Hunter Story Creators, and is always full of practical and helpful advice about writing. This year they’re teasing out the question of how to give your stories a future by bringing them to life.
Jessie Ansons will be talking to Aidan Walsh, Maree Gallop and Sally Egan about their published stories and novel. Further details are available on their blog.
