When is Canberra Writers Festival 2022

Canberra Writers Festival

Wednesday 10 August Through To Sunday 14 August

In the soul of our enthusiasm for words and thoughts, we are glad to report that the 2022 Canberra Writers Festival will be arranged from Wednesday 10 August through to Sunday 14 August, with a welcome return to a full program of live occasions.

Following two years of pandemic disorder, an expansive reach and famous line-up of authors whose work and words will engage, illuminate, challenge, and motivate you. Yet again across in excess of 60 live occasions, the celebration will offer a diverse and dynamic scope of worldwide, public, and neighborhood abstract ability under our driving topic of Power Politics Passion.
