Adelaide Writers' Week

Genre: Festivals

Country of Origin: Australia

Adelaide Writers' Week, held in the capital of South Australia since 1960 and considered one of the world's pre-eminent literary events, is a traditional part of the Adelaide Festival of Arts where attendees meet and discuss literature with Australian and international writers in "Meet the Author" sessions, readings and lectures. It is held in Adelaide's Pioneer Women's Memorial Garden.

It is Australia’s largest free literary festival, offering both writers and readers a unique opportunity to spend time sharing ideas and literary explorations. Curated by Director Laura Kroetsch, each carefully selected program brings the world's most celebrated established and emerging writers together for a week that delights, surprises and enlightens audiences.

Each Adelaide Writers’ Week includes six days of free panel sessions that are presented live in the gardens, and made available online via podcast. The program also features a series of ticketed special events throughout the year, and the popular free Kids’ Weekend, which attracts hundreds of families for fun and engaging literary adventures. - Wikipedia
