The Bendigo Writers Festival provides a forum to meet and talk about books and writing, and, mostly, to enjoy the conviviality of a festival set in View Street, Bendigo. There are interviews and debates about everything; you can be sure you’ll find something to delight, amuse, intrigue and stimulate. And everyone is invited to share in a warm and friendly winter weekend.
Three days of brilliant discussions with a galaxy of international and Australian writers. Ticket options range from three-day festival pass, to single-ticket Quick Picks and feature events. After dark, the Festival Club is the perfect place to catch up on all the day’s highlights.
Writers on the program include: Alice Pung, Paul Davies, Julia Shaw, AC Grayling, Maeve O’Meara, Min Jin Lee, Alan Kohler, Louise Milligan, Megan K Stack, Benjamin Law, John Marsden, Clementine Ford, Ranjana Srivastana, Munjed Al Muderis.
Special events include: Meshel Laurie on why Buddhism is good for you, at The Great Stupa of Universal Compassion; Saturday night keynote address on What Is Life? by Paul Davies; Gastronomy Breakfast on Sunday morning with Jill Dupleix and Terry Durack, prepared by Sonia and Nick Anthony from Masons of Bendigo.
