Bendigo Writers Festival About Us.jpg

Bendigo Writers Festival is an annual three-day event which gathers more than 100 writers for discussions about every kind of writing under the sun. It's an end-of-winter celebration that warms up our beautiful Central Victorian region with a friendly, exuberant, tempting program for young and old.

We started up in 2012, what we thought would be a small experiment to see if our city and region would be interested.

The response was brilliant! So our 7th Bendigo Writers Festival once more lit up View Street in the heart of the city, from August 10-12 in 2018 

Our dates in 2019 are August 9-11.

Bendigo Writers Festival is an initiative of The Capital Venues and Events, a unit of the City of Greater Bendigo, and is supported by La Trobe University and Bendigo Tourism.
