Join Newcastle Writers Festival on 28 August for our first live Schools Program in four years!
The program is part of this year’s Book Week celebrations and draws on the theme, ‘Read, Grow, Inspire’. In the popular presentations, writers and illustrators will perform from their work, talk about their craft, and take questions from students. There will also be a series of workshops, presented by trained writers from our Story Hunter program that offer a more intensive and individual learning experience for Stage 2 and 3 students.
Bookings open at 9.00am on Tuesday 25 July, 2023
Tickets are $6 per student for presentations and $18.50 for workshops.
Teachers and guardians are free when accompanying students. All supervising adults are to remain for the duration of the events.
Thank you to our sponsors: Federal Government RISE Fund, Catfish Foundation, Port Waratah Coal Services, Newcastle Libraries and Newcastle Museum.See the program
