In 2023, Sydney Writers’ Festival will once again stream live events to over 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.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
