I’ve recently had the very exciting opportunity to get involved with a local Writers festival right in my own home town of Wollongong!
It began life just last year as Wollongong’s very own student-run event for writers at the University of Wollongong. This year it is getting out into the community with a fantastic line up of panels, workshops and events. The best part of this festival is the two-fold way it engages writers and creatives. Beyond the events themselves, it’s the interactive and inclusive nature of the Festival that bodes well for the future of creative communities in the ‘Gong. I’ve been having a blast getting involved, meeting and interviewing some home-grown creatives. Check out my guest post and stay tuned for more to come!
