Writers Unleashed Festival 2019

Saturday August 17 at Gymea Tradies (Sydney).

This year’s tenth anniversary Writers Unleashed festival—hosted by the Sutherland Shire branch of the Fellowship of Australian Writers—will feature a variety of author talks running throughout the day, in three rooms. From authors who write for adults, and also YA and children. There are plenty of sessions to choose from, with an array of topics on discussion to interest both writers and readers alike.

Attendees can also book an editor consultation, a half hour one-on-one meeting with a publishing professional to assess your manuscript and possibly help to get your work published.
