Bendigo Writers Festival

VIC 10 Aug - 10 Sep 2017

Bendigo Writers Festival is one of Australia's best literary festivals. So we are thrilled that Leigh Hobbs is a featured guest in the opening night event, a session for schools and...drum exhibition dedicated to his work.

Also appearing are: Anna Ciddor, Will Kostakis, Belinda Murrell, Kelly Gardiner and Bruce Mutard. Workshops will be offered by Chris Kennett, Katrina Nannestad, Casey Bennetto and Michael Johnson, ABC Heywire and Bruce Mutard. (We did say Bendigo is one of the best festivals in the country, didn't we?) All details for Text Marks the Spot are here.
