Literary Festivals

Australia’s appetite for literary festivals knows no bounds. In 1962 we had just one in Adelaide - now it’s suggested there are over 100 around the country. In my view there is a real desire in our community to get together to discuss ideas, talk about books, exchange opinions and share experiences. Literary Festivals provide an excellent forum to do just that. If you haven’t been to one yet, I urge you seek out a festival near you and give it a try. They are very inspiring and lots of fun.

I am fortunate to have been invited to contribute to a range of literary festivals in Australia and Asia as a panel moderator, participant and interviewer. Each festival has its own style and flavour, all providing incredible insights to a wide variety of authors.
