Bendigo Writers Festival
Time Out says
The Bendigo Writers Festival is perfect for anyone who likes to read, write or be a part of fascinating discussions
Since 2012 the Bendigo Writers Festival has been the go-to event for the region's avid readers and writers. Primarily located in the city's View Street arts precinct, the festival has events all over the city – everything from talks to storytelling sessions and debates.
Authors this year include Clementine Ford, who will discuss her feminist treatise Boys Will Be Boys; Louise Milligan, whose controversial George Pell biography Cardinal helped bring down one of the Vatican's most powerful figures; finance whiz Alan Kohler, who will talk about his book Money and Ethics; and media personality and Family Law writer Benjamin Law, who will discuss his book Growing Up Gay.
Not only that, but famous British food writer Jill Dupleix will be giving a talk as part of Bendigo's efforts to become a UNESCO-recognised 'city of gastronomy'.
