Mark Colvin

Everyone involved with the Newcastle Writers Festival is deeply saddened by the death of Mark Colvin. His brilliant journalism, ideas and insight have helped shape healthy debate about a number of important issues here and overseas. Mark had to withdraw from this year’s festival and was very keen to visit in 2018. We will miss him.
