Event dates to be confirmed: June 2017
In 2016, the Bellingen Readers and Writers Festival (BRWF) is delighted to welcome Australia's most popular playwright David Williamson and Sydney Morning Herald columnist and author Richard Glover, who will no doubt attract a large audience when they appear in panel sessions on the stage at the Memorial Hall. The panel sessions cover journalism, fiction, poetry, online and digital writing, memoir and biography, and playwriting among other topics. Tony Windsor, back in the political fray, will go head to head with festival director Irina Dunn in a session titled "Death threats be damned, I'm going to stand!" Other guests of the BRWF include a serving member of the Australian Air Force who writes thrillers and a pilot who turned to fiction to get a conservation point of view across to her readers.
