National Young Writers’ Festival
The 13th annual National Young Writers’ Festival (NYWF) is taking place in Newcastle September 29 to October 3, 2011
NYWF is the country’s largest gathering of young and innovative writers working in both new and traditional forms: bloggers, poets, journalists, screenwriters, zine-writers and comics.
The festival gives emerging writers a chance to learn about the industry, while also offering a platform to voice your own thoughts and ideas, to be critical, be controversial and be creative.
With sixty panels, workshops, roundtables, performances and special events, a diverse range of artists including Lawrence Leung, Dominic Knight, Patrick O’Neil and editors from HarperCollins, Penguin, Meanjin and Overland, Saturday night’s Big Top Ball and the famous Spelling Bee showdown, NYWF is a writers’ festival like no other.
All NYWF events are free and no registration is required. For more information, go to the website.
