As part of the Adelaide Festival, Adelaide Writers' Week has taken on a life of it's own and continues to grow in popularity.

Adelaide Writers' Week - 2018

Once again presented on the beautiful shaded lawns of the Pioneer Womens Garden in the city, it feels like the literary heart of Adelaide comes alive as a part of the buzz of 'Mad March' in. Writers' Week is a refreshing retreat from the excellent but sometimes ridiculous Fringe Festival and the popular display of horsepower known this year as the 'Superloop 500'.

Held from the 2nd - 7th March across three stages, AWW offers a packed program of presenters and discussions that will hold something for everyone to treasure. This year includes a weekend of events for younger readers and a new twilight program.

Man Booker Prize-winning author Ben Okri delivers the writers' week opening address titled Imagination Redeems at The Riverbank Palais on Thursday 28th February. To wrap things up, the Zeitgeist series will be held in Elder Hall on the 6 - 7 March.

Well known journalists, award-winning authors and ex-politicians will all take part in a series of discussions based around the writers' week theme of 'Telling Truths'. Gillian Triggs and Rick Sarre will open the first day on Saturday at 9.30 am with 'Speaking Up'. Other highlights include 'A Cinematic Life' with David Stratton and Deb Tribe, and 'Run For Your Life' with Bob Carr and David Penberthy.

On Saturday 2nd March, The Story Tent offers storytelling for kids and discussion from writers and public figures like Jane Doyle, who will read her favourite story. Bring the kids to be a part of the magic of storytelling!

This event is a must do for any Adelaide writer. You'll never feel as much a part of a larger, connected community of writers and journalists in Adelaide as you will here.
