The perfect excursion for your book-loving Primary Students!

Sydney Writers’ Festival Primary School Days program is designed to inspire the next generation of readers and storytellers.

Our hugely popular sessions bring renowned children’s authors and illustrators to primary students for a fun, interactive and educational day that deepens their love of reading and writing.

The day is broken up into sessions and students will hear from all the writers and illustrators featured in the day's program. Our speakers will also be available during breaks to meet students, answer questions and sign books. A dedicated bookshop will be set up at the venue.

Six bestselling children’s book creators come together to share insights behind their bestselling work. You’ll meet Tasma Walton and Samantha Campbell, the team behind Nerra, a thrilling new series inspired by First Nations history; Kate and Jol Temple will turn their attention to the best (or is that worst) book baddies imaginable; Nova Weetman, author of Sick Bay, will share what she has learnt from writing TV and why she always leads with character; while American author Lev Grossman will reveal the real world problems at the core of his magical fantasy novels.

Wednesday 29 May Primary School Days supported by UNSW Sydney.

The Primary School Days program is best suited to school children in Years 3 to 6.
