The 2021 Sydney Writers’ Festival… Get Planning

The 2021 Sydney Writers’ Festival opens next week and there’s something for everyone on the program. This is a festival underpinned by a sense of hope. Artistic Director Michael Williams says:

“Let’s face it, hope has felt pretty far off over the past year. We’ve been so far apart – both physically and culturally. But isolated in our bubbles, hope mattered more than ever. And we reached for it through our art form of choice: words. Beautiful, glorious, stupid and serious words. There is no more powerful machine for killing distance than a book. Literature brings us closer to worlds, ideas and voices beyond our own.”

Opening Night sees Melissa Lucashenko, Tara June Winch (appearing via video) and Evelyn Araluen reflecting on what writing has brought within their reach, while David Malouf delivers the Closing Night Address – two nights acting as bookends to this great event.

Whether you’re a literature lover, news junkie or a YA fan, there are more than 130 events to choose from. But many are already sold out, so get planning…
