Writers' Week schedule & line-up changes content

With so many writers participating in Writers' Week every year, changes are inevitable. We apologise for the inconvenience these changes may cause and thank you for understanding.

If you have the printed guide in your hands, please note the below sessions have changed. As always, we suggest checking our online schedule for the most accurate information.

We will do our best to keep this page updated with any changes that may occur: before heading to the Garden on the day, make sure you check the website for any schedule or lineup changes. 

Please note: Due to illness, some authors will now be appearing via live stream. Changes from live to streaming, changes to chairs and changes to session titles are not reflected on this page. Please see the session pages, lineup or online schedule for the most up-to-date information.
