Snowy Mountains Readers Writers Festival




FESTIVAL 2014 WELCOME by Karen Viggers…

~~The Snowy Mountains Readers Writers Festival was first conceived in 2011 when a group of passionate Jindabyne booklovers saw the opportunity to encourage people to come to the beautiful Snowy Mountains to celebrate books, writing and stories. This exciting cultural initiative was developed in partnership with Snowprint (the local bookshop), the Monaro Libraries (of the Snowy River Shire) and other local businesses. Now in its third year, the festival continues to expand on its vision of bringing together readers and writers from all walks of life to share ideas. Run as a series of events throughout the year, the program is diverse and encompasses both adults’ and children’s books, fiction and non-fiction, poetry, history, crime, memoir, as well as offering workshops with established authors for would-be or developing writers.

Earlier this year a highly successful Children’s Festival was held, showcasing wonderful authors, such as Jackie French, Sulari Gentill, Sandy McKinnon, Tonya Alexandra, Mark Carthew and Gil Wilson.

Coming up on November 8 and 9 at Thredbo 2014, the next instalment of the festival will bring a wealth of new authors to the region including Peter FitzSimons to speak about his new book Gallipoli, and poet Omar Musa whose debut novel Here Come the Dogs is creating waves in the literary world. Other fabulous guest authors will include: Chris Uhlman, Steve Lewis, Biff Ward, Sulari Gentill, Anna George, David Leser and poet Victoria McGrath, among others.

As Patron of the Snowy Mountains Readers Writers Festival, I invite you to make a special trip to Thredbo to enjoy hearing these inspiring people share their stories.
