Sydney Writers’ Festival will run from 26 April–2 May this year. 2021’s theme, Within Reach, highlights the astonishing writers who are shaping Australian literature right now. It recognises those authors who show us an Australia that is not monolithic or static but varied, curious and challenging. We have gathered the many diverse and exciting writers who are right here, within our reach – asking questions, raising their voices and defining this culture.
Join Scribe authors Alison Croggon, Rebecca Giggs, Veronica Gorrie, Niki Savva, and Jeff Sparrow at events throughout the festival.
