Welcome to the SJWF 2012 blog!
We are very excited about our fourth Sydney Jewish Writers’ Festival which will be taking place on 25-28 August 2012 and hope you will be able to join us. Don’t let the name mislead you – you don’t have to be Jewish or a writer to attend.
The festival is not just for those who aspire to putting pen to paper. It’s a great opportunity for anyone who enjoys reading or thinking about ideas. Over four days a remarkable variety of authors will take us on a journey, offering their frustrations, ideas and insights.
The authors are an eclectic bunch writing across multiple genres and themes, including travel, thriller, parenthood, Holocaust, memoir, and food (after all, it is a Jewish writers’ festival!). Watch this space – as well as Facebook, Twitter and our website (relaunching in May) – for more information about our local, interstate and international writers and their books, short stories, scripts, blogs and articles.
We really enjoyed the range of speakers at the 2010 SJWF. We left feeling inspired, humbled, energised and determined to read and write more.
This year's festival is shaping up to be full of thought-provoking ideas with stimulating conversations. Watch this space, there's more to come!
Warning: At the end of the festival, your list of MUST-read books will be even longer!
Save the date: 25-28 August 2012
