Sharing stories is a tradition that spans time and place, culture and continents. In 2016 MWF will take audiences on a literary tour of Australia and all corners of the globe.
The Festival invites thought-provoking discussion at events exploring the hottest topical issues. For those who prefer to focus on life’s pleasures, there’ll be events for foodies, travellers and connoisseurs of culture. We’ll also invite adventurous readers to join like-minded lovers of literature for a range of relaxed social activities in unexpected places.
