Newcastle Writers Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

6 Apr 2018 to 8 Apr 2018

The Newcastle Writers Festival celebrates national and regional literary talent over three days each April. More than 100 writers and thinkers participate in 70 sessions – half of which are free – that include panel discussions, readings, book launches and one-on-one interviews. Previous guests include Tim Flannery, Stan Grant, Charlotte Wood, David Marr and Hugh Mackay.

The Festival is held in the Civic cultural precinct, which includes Newcastle Art Gallery and Newcastle Museum. It is close to the city’s bars, cafes and restaurants. Guest writers praise the friendly audiences and dedicated team of volunteers.
