Sydney Writers’ Festival 2018

Sydney Writers’ Festival is back in town from 30 April-6 May.

Each year, Sydney Writers’ Festival presents more than 400 events, attracting audiences of 100,000 plus for a week-long conversation of books and ideas. Our home at Walsh Bay is undergoing a major refurbishment so we are excited to bring the Festival to Carriageworks (located in the heritage-listed rail yards in Eveleigh) in 2018. There will also be events stretching across Sydney, from the City Recital Hall and Sydney Town Hall in the city centre, into suburban Sydney and the Blue Mountains.

We bring together some of the world’s most curious and compassionate, irreverent but respectful, intelligent and argumentative writers – from local and international contemporary novelists, screenwriters, musicians and writers of cutting-edge nonfiction, to 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.
