Sydney Writers Festival

The Sydney Writers Festival is now on, bringing together writers of various forms and from various backgrounds, including the best contemporary novelists, screenwriters, musicians and writers of cutting-edge non-fiction, and some of the world’s leading public intellectuals, scientists and journalists. With the finest writing and storytelling at its core, its programming is driven by the ideas and issues that animate all types of literature.
