NEWCASTLE  WRITERS  FESTIVAL

2020 Schools Program

The Newcastle Writers Festival Schools Program is a wonderful opportunity for students to engage with their favourite authors and be inspired in a fun, educational and interactive way. For the third year, all author presentations are free though registration is still required. In these popular sessions, writers perform from their work, talk about their craft and take questions from students.

NWF20 Program

The 2020 Newcastle Writers Festival is out now. Director Rosemarie Milsom said this year’s program was influenced by the catastrophic bushfires that plagued NSW for six months. “I’m not alone in feeling as though we reached a tipping point this summer,” she said. “It’s during times like these that you wonder about the role that literature can play. I feel very strongly that it can have a profound impact on the way we engage with key issues and it can also shape the healing process.”
 
There are 90 free and ticketed events in this year’s program. Enjoy!
