Byron Writers Festival 2016 Full Program Announced


The full Byron Writers Festival Program (5-7 August) features a stellar line-up of more than 150 celebrated international and Australian writers, thinkers and commentators.

Heading the roll-call is lauded American satirist and political commentator P.J. O’Rourke, presented in collaboration with The Centre for Independent Studies as part of their 40th Anniversary celebrations.

Among the international guests sharing their stories are best-selling UK novelist Louise Doughty; Irish writer Evelyn Conlon; Spanish ex-police officer Victor del Arbol whose novel won this year’s Premio Nadal; and three powerful Indian writers – novelist and human rights activist Salma, memoirist Rosalyn D’Mello and poet Sharanya Manivannan.

Food, history, music, politics, screenwriting, memoir, journalism, surf, poetry, art, education, comedy…whatever your literary love, this year’s Byron Writers Festival has it covered.
