2021 Newcastle Writers Festival postponed until next year

Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 outbreak in Sydney, Newcastle Writers Festival has postponed its September festival until 2022.


Festival director Rosemarie Milsom said the safety of guest writers, volunteers, audiences, and staff, was paramount.

“While the Hunter has avoided a lockdown, there are travel and venue restrictions in place for good reason,” she said.
