Bendigo Writers Festival 2015

Summary: packed out. At least 700 people (mostly students) in the Ulumbarra Theatre on the Friday morning to see the panel that included John Marsden, Susan Green, Alice Pung and Narelle Stone. I mean, this is Bendigo we’re talking about – and it’s only a few years in to the BWF! I sat with Susan Green and Alice Pung in their sessions with students – both great speakers. Susan had her Victorian era paraphernalia and Alice has her parents’ refugee stories to talk about. The best writers’ festivals leave you with lots to think about – this one certainly did.
