Perth Festival Writers Weekend

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

Perth Festival is taking over Fremantle Arts Centre with its Perth Festival Writers Weekend, part of the 2022 Perth Festival Literature and Ideas program.

Enjoy a glorious weekend in the beautiful gardens to celebrate books and the people who write (and read) them.

Gather with fellow literary lovers to dive into the theme of connection and hear from authors in conversation. Some authors will speak live while others will appear via live stream from across the country and around the world.

Confirmed speakers include Zoe Deleuil (The Night Village), Sara Foster (You Don’t Know Me), Helen Garner (Monkey Grip, The First Stone, Joe Cinque’s Consolation), Guy Ghouse and Gina Williams (Kalyakoorl (Forever) and Bindi Bindi (The Butterfly), Hannah Kent (Devotion, Burial Rights, The Good People), Aunty Doreen Nelson and Rhoda Marriott AM (Ngangk Waangening, Mothers’ Stories), Michael Robotham (When You Are Mine), Lisa Taddeo (Animal, Three Women), Sisonke Msimang in conversation with Dr Elfie Shiosaki (Homecoming) and Dr Cindy Solonec (Debesa: The Story of Frank and Katie Rodriguez).

The full Perth Festival Writers Weekend program will be announced on 20 January 2022 – see their website for further details.
