Sydney Writers Festival

Sydney Writers Festival

At the Sydney Writers Festival, four hundred writers participate in more than 300 hundred events—that’s right: this thing is huge. The festival regularly pulls in the biggest names in words –Dave Eggers, A.M. Homes, Andrew Solomon, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan—for illuminating readings, one-on-one talks and panel discussions. It’s a total feast for writers (and readers) who want to gorge on ideas and inspiration.
