The Sutherland Shire Writers’ Festival, known as Writers Unleashed, is a growing community and literary event.
From humble beginnings, we have expanded our program to incorporate workshops, book launches and publishing consultations as well as the author talks and book signings.
With a strong focus on the promotion and support of Australian writers and publishers, the festival also aims to educate and encourage aspiring writers and illustrators throughout the region.
Many of our presenters are at the top of their field, though we also love to promote newly emerging talents. The topics and genres of books and literature presented aim to reflect the diversity of writers within Australia.
This year we will be running sessions concurrently in 3 rooms, devoted to presentations by children's writers, YA writers and adult writers and editors. There also will be panel discussions at the final session.
