Bellingen Readers & Writers Festival 7 – 9 June 2019

With a focus on contemporary Australian writers, the Bellingen Readers & Writers Festival is working towards presenting an exciting line-up of literary talent once again to be held on the long weekend in June 2019.

Drawing on the success of 2018, the festival will offer a fun, intimate, thought-provoking and at times challenging program. Audiences can expect to engage with a variety of personalities of the literary world in a range of venues from the historic Bellingen Memorial Hall to intimate cafes and restaurants around town.

Whether you are a budding writer or a passionate lover of literature, start making plans for the June long weekend in 2019. Be part of this exciting regional community event in the picturesque river town of Bellingen, listed as one of the prettiest villages in Australia.
