We're excited to welcome a few 2023 favourites back to Adelaide Writers' Week in 2024.

More details will be released when the full program is announced in early 2024.


For more than 22 years, Insiders has been unmissable television for political tragics and anyone wanting to stay up to date on federal politics. Host David Speers returns to Adelaide Writers’ Week, bringing with him a panel of Australia’s sharpest political minds to dissect the week in politics. David will interview one of the nation’s leading politicians live on stage, and it wouldn’t be Insiders without Guardian Australia’s Mike Bowers Talking Pictures with one of the country’s finest cartoonists.   

The Australia Institute 

The Australia Institute is the nation’s leading independent think-tank, whose high impact research changes minds and creates more informed debate of the issues that matter. The Australia Institute is partnering with Writers’ Week in 2024 to offer some answers on the policy questions facing Australia today. Australia Institute Executive Director Richard Denniss and the team will share with us the big problems facing Australia today and what we need to do to fix them. A series of provocative, courageous and perhaps even optimistic, unmissable discussions. 


Join the hosts of ABC Radio’s Conversations program, Richard Fidler and Sarah Kanowski, for some rich, remarkable, real-life stories with some of the world’s finest writers.
