Writers Festival With A Difference
Now in its fourth year, the Whitsunday Writers Festival is unique in that it specifically offers the opportunity of close contact with the authors over drinks and dinner. This year the festival will be held 12-14 July at Coral Sea Resort, Airlie Beach, a principal sponsor of the event. The Whitsundays are about as beautiful a setting for a writers festival as you can imagine, and yes, the water is really that colour.
Previous speakers include David Hill, ex CEO of ABC television and Susan Wyndham Literary Editor of The Sydney Morning Herald who both commented that the festival has a lot to offer everyone, including the guest speakers. As July is peak season for the Whitsundays, this Writers Festival can be combined with a winter holiday. It is a wonderful way to escape the cold weather down South and not as far as Ubud.
