Newcastle Writers Festival
On March 20, 2015
Lovers of literature, hungry to tap into the hearts and minds of their favourite authors, will be inspired by the diverse mix of writers attending the 2015 Newcastle Writers Festival. From the best contemporary crime writing, to high voltage Aussie rock'n'roll history, award-winning poetry, ethical dilemmas, sex addiction, a centenary since the outbreak of World War I, motherhood, high adventure, and high-heeled drama at a fashion magazine - this year's festival is a colourful coming together of genres and ideas from some of Australia's most interesting and respected writers and thinkers.
