With a keynote address by Mark Holden

The 13th annual Salisbury Writers Festival kicks off on Friday 18th August with a jam-packed opening and awards evening featuring an anticipated keynote address by Australian singer, actor, TV personality, record producer, songwriter, and barrister Mark Holden.

Proudly presented by the City of Salisbury in partnership with the SA Writers Centre, the Salisbury Writers Festival features an exciting program of presentations, workshops, forums and events for writers and literary enthusiasts across a variety of genres.

During the opening night event Mark will kick off the Salisbury Writers' Festival by talking about his new book My Idol Years, which explores Mark's youth in Adelaide, the Countdown years, and the wild side of making music and living in Los Angeles in the 1980s. The funny, warm and generous book is full of stories about personalities including Elton John, David Hasselhoff, Molly Meldrum, John Paul Young, and of course, his fellow Idol presenters.

The evening will conclude with the announcement of the winners of the Salisbury Writer's Festival short story and poetry competitions.

This opening night event is FREE to attend, however bookings are essential: secure your ticket today at www.salisbury.sa.gov.au/swf.
