Wollongong Writers Festival, a celebration of stories, art and ideas on the NSW South Coast, is excited to announce one of its most lit line ups of authors, poets, journalists, artists, comedians and musicians for its seventh annual festival this November.

The theme of this year’s festival is All Lit Up. Writers from across Australia will gather at Wollongong Art Gallery to celebrate the power of writing and art for illuminating topics that have been silenced, have stigma attached to them, or need to be spoken about in new and more complex ways.

Festival Director Chloe Higgins has curated a diverse range of voices and events for shining a light on subjects that would otherwise remain in the dark, including Benjamin Law tackling the big topics of sex, death, money, religion and politics with Clementine Ford, Stephanie Wood and Jess Hill.

Behrouz Boochani, author of No Friend But the Mountains: Writing from Manus Prison, will be in conversation with author Mark Isaacs via Skype. Bri Lee and Tony Birch will be on a panel on crime and punishment. Charlotte Wood will be discussing her novel, The Weekend.
