VIEW / PRINT THE SCHEDULE ON ONE PAGE

As we celebrate the 30th Adelaide Festival, it is a great privilege to be presenting the 2015 Adelaide Writers’ Week, also celebrating its 30th milestone event. Again this year we host some of contemporary literature’s great writers and thinkers in the glorious setting that is the Pioneer Women’s Memorial Garden.

Together we gather under the trees to welcome poets, novelists, historians, journalists, geographers, biographers, memoirists, more than one bad feminist, a social worker from Montana and a man who was raised as a bird. We’ll be talking about money, mysteries and troubled marriages; we will look back into history and forward into what seems an uncertain future. Travel with us from a tiny apartment in India to the castles of Great Britain, via Antarctica and the Australian bush. We welcome you on the journey that is Adelaide Writers’ Week, and look forward to sharing some of the world’s most inspiring stories.
