The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to cancel the Bellingen Readers and Writers Festival 2020 long weekend programme. However, not to be undone, the BRWF committee has been busy working out what we can still deliver.
A number of sponsors and people who have bought earlybird tickets have generously donated their funds in spite of cancellation of the main programme. These funds have helped us pay bills and given us the opportunity to explore virtual avenues to provide for our literary audience.
Click on the PROGRAMME 2020 tab to find recordings or more information concerning the event. We’re adding more events as they come on line. Most are free – offered either as Zoom links or streamed on Facebook. A couple of events require you to book via Trybooking: Poetry Slam (if you want voting rights and better view). Link to details for the I Love Bello Short Story Competition.
Keep an eye out for our email Newletters for details and tap into the BRWF Facebook page for regular updates. And, of course, check back to this website for updates.
We’ll see you virtually and stay well!
We particularly thank the following sponsors for their ongoing support: IngramSpark; Officeworks; Waterfall Way Associates; HQB Chartered Accountants; Mercedes-Benz Coffs coast; Bellingen Shire Council; Coffs Harbour Council.
