2021 Program Launch: The Words That Shaped Us

What are the books that shaped you? Come and celebrate the texts that have influenced our lives literally and literarily, alongside the reveal of the jam-packed 2021 Emerging Writers’ Festival program.

This special launch event will feature festival artists Mia Nie, Luke Patterson, Yamiko Marama and Olivia Muscat. Join them as they share favourite passages and personal reflections on the formative texts that shaped their paths as readers, writers and human beings. EWF’s Artistic Director Ruby Rose Pivet-Marsh and Program Coordinator Millie Baylis will also share some of this year’s festival highlights across both in-person and online literary events, to help prepare you for a new winter full of words.
