The Mildura Writers' Festival brings together some of Australia's best writers in an intimate, winter program of workshops, lectures and discussion forums.

Beginning in 1994 in Stefano de Pieri's cellar restaurant, this event has evolved to be acclaimed as among the finest literary festivals in the country. A reputation earnt because of its literary qualities, the calibre of talent it attracts and the atmosphere of conviviality presented during the provincial Victorian winter. Late night discussions around wood fires, showcase the local and regional gourmet food and wine.

For 2014, Festival Artistic Director Paul Kane based in New York USA, has currently confirmed the following writers and poets: Christina Thompson, Will Eaves, Robert Adamson, Lisa Gorton, Alex Miller, Gideon Haigh, Helen Garner, Alice Pung, Bruce Pascoe and Chris Wallace-Crabbe.
