Bendigo Writers Festival: Young at Heart

We are delighted to be partnering with a sweep of wonderful festivals in Victoria’s regions this winter. What better excuse to get out into the countryside, than when you’re also promised fine authors, excellent discussion and splendid company?

In this session at the Bendigo Bank Theatre, our panel will discuss why writers choose to write for younger readers, and how they keep their work fresh. With Doug Mcleod, Craig Smith, Maureen Mccarthy and Glenda Millard; chaired by Jenny Niven.

Sponsored by ALEA Central Victoria, SLAV Bendigo, ALEA Victoria and CBCA Bendigo.

On the Road

We can’t wait to get back on the road again – bringing some of our favourite writers to regional Victoria. We’ll be packing up the car with books and authors, travelling from country to coast … and making sure Melbourne doesn’t get all the literary fun. Look out for our bootful of books – coming to a town near you.
