Melbourne 2019 Writers Festival
August 30 - September 8
Each year we invite our audience to be challenged, be entertained, to learn and be inspired through a buzzing program of storytelling, conversation and discussion, intellectual debate, educational programs, live performance, music and art events.
The Festival includes events for people of all ages and more than a quarter of the program is free. Our highly regarded Schools’ Program is Australia’s biggest literary festival for students.
