Sydney Writers’ Festival 2016

Sydney Writers’ Festival is back in town from 16-22 May.

Each year, Sydney Writers’ Festival presents over 300 events, attracting audiences of 100,000 to Sydney’s gorgeous harbourside location and other venues. The heart of the Festival is at Walsh Bay in heritage wharves on Sydney Harbour. There are also events stretching across Sydney, from the Opera House and Sydney Town Hall, into suburban Sydney and the Blue Mountains.

The Festival brings together writers from various forms and backgrounds, including the best contemporary novelists, screenwriters, musicians and writers of cutting edge nonfiction, and some of the world’s leading public intellectuals, scientists and journalists. With the finest writing and storytelling at its core, our programming is driven by the ideas and issues that animate all types of literature.

Stay tuned for the program announcement in late March!
