Enjoy a week of writers’ talks, discussions and readings at new locations this year

It’s all change for Sydney Writers’ Festival in 2018 – they’ve upsticks from the Walsh Bay Arts Precinct, which is being developed, to new locations: Carriageworks and the Seymour Centre. They’re also shifting the timing of this long running event to almost a month earlier, starting on April 30. Michaela McGuire is still at the helm as artistic director, and she’s expected to reveal this year’s program on Thursday March 15. Though the main hub will be Carriageworks, events are planned for familiar haunts Sydney Town Hall, City Recital Hall, Roslyn Packer Theatre and venues in Parramatta and Chatswood.
