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.
