Sydney Writers’ Festival

Late April-Early May

The Writers’ Festival is run by the NSW Writers’ Centre, two to three times a year, bringing together emerging and established writers for a day filled with intriguing panels, workshops, discussions, book signings, readings, and networking. Join in on a celebration of literature, stories and ideas – and keep an eye out for the book seller and complimentary after-event drinks.

The Sydney Writers Festival events take place in a number of venues across Sydney, including the City Recital Hall and Sydney Town Hall in the city, to theatres in suburban areas, all the way out to the Blue Mountains.
