Schools Program 2018

The Newcastle Writers Festival Schools Program presented in partnership with Port of Newcastle is a wonderful opportunity for students to engage with their favourite authors and be inspired in a fun, educational and interactive way.

For the first time since the program’s inception, writer presentations are free. In these popular sessions, writers perform from their work, talk about their craft and take questions from students. The workshop series offers students a more intensive, individual learning experience.

In 2018, we are thrilled to be taking our program to Cessnock as part of a new partnership with Cessnock City Council.

Special thanks to our partner Port of Newcastle and sponsors Create NSW, Newcastle and Cessnock City Councils, as well as the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund. Thanks also to MacLean’s Booksellers.
