NT Writers’ Festival
Since 1998 the NT Writers’ Centre has presented the NT Writers’ Festival annually, alternating between Wordstorm – Darwin and Eye of the Storm – Alice Springs or other regional centre.
The Festival is unique in Australia for profiling Indigenous Australian, South East Asian Voices, and Northern Territory writers.
The 2017 NT Writers’ Festival – Alice Springs will be 18-21 May.
The writers’ festival falls on the cusp of the desert winter, when the heat has lifted and cooler nights call for fireside gatherings, storytelling and books.
NT Writers’ Festival – Alice Springs is an intimate festival of writing, ideas and culture at the heart of the country.
Watch this space for the 2017 theme to be announced in the coming weeks.

What they said in 2015…
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.
