6 – 8 September @ various locations in and around Kununurra ·
Presented by Kimberley Writers Festival ·

This is a one-of-a-kind writer’s festival held in one of Australia’s most stunning, dramatic and remote locations, providing an opportunity to meet authors and specialguests in an informal environment. It’s a completely different experience to big city writer’s festivals. Now in its 14th year, the 2019 program will include workshops, readings, a literary breakfast, and more. The annual Sunday Ord River Cruise champagne brunch and storytelling returns, and is usually a sell-out.

Guests confirmed for this year’s Kimberley Writers Festival include award-winning children’s writer and poet Meg McKinlay; former Canberra journalist and foreign correspondent-turned crime novelist Chris Hammer; New Zealand-born and raised young readers author Raewyn Caisley who has a special connection with Kimberley country; novelist and playwright Steve Hawke; photographer and visual storyteller Chris Gurney; award-winning writer and Sydney-based author and translator Tiffany Tsao, and Kimberley Fine Diamonds Owner and Kimberley doyenne Frauke Bolten.

Tickets: Tickets are available through Eventbrite and the Kununurra Library. Phone 08 9169 1227 or email librarian@swek.wa.gov.au for information.
