National Writers' Conference

The centrepiece of the Emerging Writers’ Festival, the National Writers’ Conference is the place to be for emerging writers hungry to hear from leaders in the field, develop their skills, and meet other excited word-nerds. Two days at the State Library is a great way to spend a weekend, and this year’s timetable is packed!

Each year, EWF invites five Ambassadors to participate in the National Writers’ Conference to share their experience, insight and knowledge with the next generation of writers. This year's ambassadors are Melina Marchetta, Anna Krien, Michelle Law, Inga Simpson and Rebecca-Anne Do Rozario. Meet our ambassadors here.

Taking place over two days, writers can purchase a conference pass for the entire weekend, or day passes for each separate day of the conference.

Book your tickets here.

Planning to attend the entire weekend? Why not upgrade to a Golden Ticket for $200? Golden Tickets are your passport to the whole festival and the best value way to get the most out of EWF - panels, performances, masterclasses and selected workshops. Book here!
