The National Young Writers’ Festival is the country’s largest gathering of young and innovative writers working in both new and traditional forms including zines, comics, blogging, screenwriting, poetry, spoken word, hip hop, journalism, autobiography, comedy, songwriting and prose.


Presented by This Is Not Art, the 2016 program boasts the largest artist count in NYWF history with 117 writers coming from all over the country as well as New Zealand.


Omar Musa, Claire Sullivan, Jennifer Down and Eliza-Jane Henry-Jones will be among the many making their way to Newcastle over the NSW Labour Day weekend to present panels, discussions, workshops, readings and more.

This year's festival will be held from Thursday September 29 to Sunday October 2. You can find more information here.
