Mildura Writers Festival
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.&
quot;You have an amazing festival, so different to those elsewhere, in that it is truly festive. Plus, you make it look easy, which I know requires a stupendous effort. I'd heard great things about the festival in advance; I'm glad to say that it exceeded even these raised expectations." Gideon Haigh, 2014
