  • Sydney Writers’ Festival - Sat 26th April to 2 May 2021.
  • Where would we be without our ABC? Checkout the upcoming Sydney Writers’ Festival programme here.

    The very interesting sessions are heavily populated with ABC journalists and presenters - current or retired. It just goes to show how important our ABC is to the national debate and production of Australian stories. 

    Sydney Writers’ Festival will stream its headline events from Carriageworks in Sydney direct to selected libraries around Australia including Burnside Library in Adelaide. Burnside Library’s specific programme will be released shortly highlighting which events will be available for viewing at the Library and which events will be live streamed via Zoom for viewing at home.
