Brimbank Writers & Readers Festival

Are you an emerging writer or performer who lives, works or studies in Brimbank, or feels connected to the area? Do you have a reading, writing or storytelling event you would like to present during the 2017 Brimbank Writers & Readers Festival?

The Brimbank Writers & Readers Festival is an annual event that encourages a love of reading and literature, celebrates creativity and diversity, and promotes lifelong learning in Brimbank. The ten day program of workshops, author talks, panel discussions, storytelling and more is free of charge for the community.

The 2017 festival is set for the dates 9-18 November 2017, and we would like to invite the Brimbank community to be involved in our program!

We are scheduling two local events:

1.) A panel discussion for three authors or emerging writers to showcase their published work.

2.) An open event, for individuals or community groups, which could include: a workshop, a spoken word performance, a public reading, a book launch or an exhibition.
