Being so remote from the capital city of Western Australia, Live & Local gives an option to attend and be a part of the Festival. Attendees stayed between sessions and chatted, had a cup of coffee and made valuable social links in the community.

We are now taking expressions-of-interest for our 2023 Live & Local program.

In 2022, Sydney Writers’ Festival once again streamed live events for almost 50 of our local partner organisations in regional Australia. This offering to our audiences provides access to new ideas across the country, and the opportunity to participate in sessions by sending questions direct to the Sydney stage.

The 2023 Live & Local program will be announced in March.

If your organisation is interested in participating in Live & Local, please complete our expressions-of-interest form.
