It's that time of year again! Last week the program for the 2014 Perth Writers Festival was revealed. Held on the beautiful grounds of the University of Western Australia, the four day event (20th - 23rd Feb) is bursting at the seams with local and international authors.
I will admit that this year there appears to be less talks featuring young adult authors, with only one free talk really exciting me. There are however lots more publishing industry professionals taking part in sessions and workshops that may be of interest to you.
I have included a couple of events below but there are many more on offer. Images are screen shots taken from the official program. For more details and to match up the event numbers, please download the PDF brochure here.

There are also writing workshops for kids held on the Family Day

And remember, the Writers Festival is part of the larger Perth International Arts Festival which features plenty of other events being held throughout February. This includes theatre and dance, classical and contemporary music, visual arts and film.
