Only 4 days to go!

Friday 26 August to Sunday 4 September will see writers, readers and literature lovers join for the 2016 Melbourne Writers Festival (MWF).

If you haven’t booked your events yet, you can still choose from over 300 to attend. Walk through a Roald Dahl exhibition, meet the Miles Franklin Literary Award winner, or listen to Justin Cronin chat about his bestselling dystopian vampire trilogy, The Passage. 

Whilst the MWF is a fantastic place to see all your favourite big-name writers and thinkers, did you know that it’s also a great place to discover new literary voices?

The free New Australian Fiction event is where you can meet some of these Australian rising literary stars, including Jennifer Down, Kate Mildenhall and Rajith Savanadasa.

But it doesn’t stop there! Writers from around the globe are scheduled to appear, including political journalist George Packer, Anjum Hasan, Goenawan Mohamad and plenty more! The full line-up is too long to list but I will name-drop a few, just for fun… Eliza Henry-Jones, Richard Flanagan, Richard Fidler, Carole Wilkinson, Jamila Rizvi. Check out the full line-up.
