The Canberra Writers Festival will be held in various venues around Canberra, between 23rd - 26th August. If you have kids, ensure you grab a cushion and enjoy Story-time events by the author themselves. Also hear discussions and talks by a variety of writers and politicians, such as Matthew Reilly, Maggie Beer and Barnaby Joyce. Take part in a book swap, get tips about getting published, go to a book launch and learn about different forms of writing and literature.
