Hurry up and you just might be on time.
This Friday 9 August city of Bendigo invites writers, readers and everyone in between to three days of spectacular, interesting, informative, challenging, provocative and outright funny and entertaining events.
Bendigo Writers Festival just like a good wine, is getting better with age. I immensely enjoyed 2018 events and am going back for more. This time I gave myself time to attend all three days.
Yes, I am leaving family and routine behind, am getting in my car and am off to Bendigo straight after work on Friday. I want to be in Bendigo in time for Crime At The Club - an evening of reading from the most popular Australian crime writers.
If you are luckier than me, you can join the festival from the very first event on Friday 9 August at 10 am. It will be amazing, trust me.
From crime writers to writers of non-fiction, from poetry to American politics, from Aboriginal culture and recognition to food and housekeeping, there will be events for all tastes. Among writers, there will be Lee Kofman and Sulari Gentill, Tony Birch and Clementine Ford. There will be foodies and political analysts, TV personalities and musicians.
If you are game enough, get yourself a three-day-pass. It will set you back $120 and $108 concession. There are ticketed events as well with prices ranging from $20. The venues are the best in town: The Capital, Ulumbarra Theatre, Engine Room and Bendigo Bowls Club.
Also, Ulumbarra Theatre will host a pop-up bookshop and cafe. However, there are plenty of nice and picturesque places to eat around Bendigo City.
