Our Festival

Our Festival

Bendigo Writers Festival began in 2012, set up to provide our region with a program that we hoped would be attractive for all kinds of readers, and bring to our city writers of all kinds to share in many discussions.

In 2017, we're asking

Where We're At.

In our sixth year, it's a good time to look back, and forward, to think about the here and now..

From society to politics, ethics to science, we welcome writers who have something to tells us about the state of our nation.

Our Team

The Festival is managed by The Capital Venues and Events, which, under the leadership of David Lloyd, provides the framework for the organisation, planning and production of our busy program.

We have a committee of management, which comprises representatives from The Capital, La Trobe University and Bendigo Weekly (major supporters) and the community.

There is also a programming support group who meet with the artistic director to give feedback and suggest ideas.
