4-5 April 2020 #nwfstoriestoyou

Newcastle Writers Festival will be the first major literary festival to turn to online program delivery since the COVID-19 crisis started to take hold in Australia. Festival director Rosemarie Milsom has mobilised writers to take their stories and experiences directly into people’s homes. 

We hope you’ll join us this weekend for a special Newcastle Writers Festival. We may not be able to sit side by side, but we can still unite online through our love of books. #NWFStoriesToYou
