National Young Writers Festival launch

Join Evelyn Araluen and festival directors Maggie Thompson and Caleb Triscari to launch the exciting 2018 program.

Supported by the City of Sydney

Each year, National Young Writers Festival (NYWF) brings together Australia’s most innovative young writers. Working in new and traditional forms, their writing varies from zines, comics, blogging, screenwriting, and poetry to spoken word, hip hop music, journalism, autobiography, comedy, songwriting and prose. The festival presents writing in its broadest sense through panels, discussions, workshops, launches, performances, readings, installations, and more.

NYWF gives young writers a place to present their work, share ideas, to learn about the industry meet with like-minded people.

Find out what’s happening at the festival and enjoy live readings and performances from Sweatshop writers Winnie Dunn, Monikka Eliah and Shirley Le.

The festival runs from 27 to 30 September 2018.

Bookings are recommended. Suitable for ages 16 years and over.



Friday 31 August 2018 from 7.30pm to 9pm
