Adelaide Writers’ Week


Adelaide Writers’ Week is the oldest literary festival in Australia, inspiring readers and creating a place where writers can connect with the community, for more than 50 years.

From Saturday, March 3 to Thursday, March 8 2012 Adelaide’s iconic literary festival returns refreshed and reinvigorated. Adelaide Writers’ Week brings together some of the world’s great writers and thinkers for a week of readings, discussions and debate. The stunning line-up includes some of contemporary literature’s most compelling voices, many of whom have never before visited Australia, and a satisfying mix of established writers and emerging voices.

Spend time with famous faces and make new discoveries in a week of surprises, challenges and entertainment. In one of the most diverse programs ever presented enjoy sessions on fiction, poetry, history, travel, food, speculative fiction, children’s literature, gaming, gardening, religious tolerance, biography, China, film, comics, TV and much, much more.

In an Australian first, ABC Radio has launched a digital radio station dedicated to broadcasting Adelaide Writers’ Week live to a national audience.

The 2012 Adelaide Writers’ Week program will be available in late January and costs $10. To order a copy email or call us on 08 8216 4444.
