Adelaide Writers’ Week


Take me to Adelaide Writers’ Week 2015

Adelaide Writers’ Week is Australia’s largest and oldest literary festival, offering both writers and readers a unique opportunity to spend time sharing ideas and literary explorations in a garden setting in Adelaide’s city centre. Curated by Director Laura Kroetsch, each carefully selected program brings the worlds’ most celebrated established and emerging writers together for a week that delights, surprises and enlightens audiences.

Each Adelaide Writers’ Week includes six days of free panel sessions that are presented live in the gardens, and made available online via podcast. The program also features a series of ticketed special events and the popular free Kids’ Days, which attracts hundreds of families for fun and engaging literary adventures.

Adelaide Writers’ Week has, since 1960, seen some of the world’s greatest writers and thinkers in conversation about literature, politics, poetry, current events, biography,  the short story and so much more. Take a look at the guest lists from 2014 and 2013.
