We Melbourne dwellers know our city is special – we have world-renowned bars, pubs and clubs and a cafe culture to boot. We're tops for shopping hot spots and touristy things to do. And above all else, Melbourne has long been home to a milieu of writers, artists and thinkers alike.
In February, our city's literary scene was recognised for its quality and diversity and Melbourne was named a UNESCO City of Literature. The City of Literature program aims to "promote the social, economic and cultural development of cities in both the developed and the developing world."
