WordFest 2019

WordFest Logo no dates

 

The annual literary event organised by the Monash Public Library Service aims to connect authors, emerging writers and readers in the Monash Community. It also provides a Winter program of engaging events in the municipality. The month long program running from June through to July comprises of a series of free author talks, competitions and low cost writing workshops and is a feature program in Monash’s event calendar.  

In 2019 WordFest the festival weaved together authors from a variety of backgrounds to tell the poignant experiences that shaped their lives, influenced their writing and enabled them to share their deepest truths.  

Many of you made it out to WordFest and heard the stories and experiences of: Mariam Issa, John Silvester, Sir John Monash Lecture Panel Discussion with Hoda Afshar, Kon Karapanagiotidis and Arnold Zable, Isobelle Carmody, Noel Braun, Les Twentyman, Carly Findlay, Moreno Giovanni, Nevo Zisin and Alice Pung, Ruth Clare, Steven Amsterdam and Gabrielle Wang.  

The jam packed program brought together passionate storytellers, writers and passionate readers and soon to be writers.  

If you missed out on making it to a WordFest event, join us next year in 2020 for yet another exciting WordFest speaker program.  

Thanks to all our participants, speakers and partners for a successful WordFest 2019.
