Melbourne Writers Festival 2017 Dates & Program Events
The Melbourne Writers Festival also draws international attention on Melbourne, with international travel journalists, groups and online writers also coming to the city to be a part of it.
The festival started in 1986 with an aim to reflect and encourage writers in Melbourne’s diverse community. Later, it became a popular event that not only promotes new publications, but also encourages new writers to learn, expand their experiences and grow within the industry.
The Melbourne Writers Festival also offers a range of diverse programs for all writers and online publishers. Workshops are conducted during this event which help writers learn different types of valuable skills. For instance, bloggers can learn writing fantasy, and journalists can acquire the skills of writing a romantic novel. Those working on a special project can also expand their horizons by taking part.
The festival also includes some free events too, with the event taking place in the month of August at ACMI. Writers, thinkers, illustrators and performers of all age groups are welcome to participate and celebrate this event in Melbourne.
