bendigo writers festival 2016

In 2016, we're making
much ado about … everything.

Bendigo Writers Festival turns five this year, and it's 400 years since Shakespeare died. So we are ready to celebrate the best things in life, from great writing to good company.

We're welcoming a brilliant lineup of speakers who will light up View Street in the heart of Bendigo.

And we're inviting everyone to share in a warm and friendly winter weekend. For those who will join us at Bendigo Writers Festival 2016, you are very welcome. To see updates to the program, please check in Festival News.
