NT Writers’ Festival

Since 1998 the NT Writers’ Centre has presented the NT Writers’ Festival annually, alternating between Darwin (Wordstorm) and Alice Springs.

With a thousand miles between locations, the festival shifts from the tropics to the desert, from wet to dry, from coastal to inlandfrom Larrakia to Arrernte country, creating a kind of contrasting tone or character between festivals which reflects something of the diversity – environmental, cultural and social – of the Northern Territory itself.

The Festival is unique in Australia for profiling Indigenous Australian, South-East Asian, and Northern Territory voices.

The 2018 Festival will be held in Darwin, May 24-27. For enquiries email executive@ntwriters.com.au

 

Here is what people have to say about the NT Writer’s Festival:

There are few writers’ festivals in Australia that I would argue are unique – that mould into the landscape and cannot exist anywhere else – but this is the exact nature of the Eye of the Storm Festival.
– MICHAEL MOHAMMED AHMAD

By far one of the greatest festivals I have ever attended as both a writer and punter…such a range of voices, stories and contributors – a true reflection of the literary and creative community in Australia.
– CANDY ROYALLE

I have been to quite a few writers’ festivals, but this one made the deepest impression by far.
