Mountain Writers Festival

The inaugural Mountain Writers Festival will take place in Wurrundjeri Country (Macedon) from 4-6 November 2022. With the theme ‘Nature. Place. Story ’, Mountain Writers Festival will be the first Australian literary festival to solely focus on environmental and ecological writing, and the impact literature has on issues such as habitat, water, species and climate change.

The festival welcomes to the Macedon Ranges an amazing line-up of local and interstate writers, thinkers and performers including Australian music icon Peter Garrett, Stella Prize winning poet Evelyn Araluen, landscape architect Costa Georgiadis, climate campaigner and bestselling author Sarah Wilson, and Torres Strait Islander actor, director and writer Aaron Fa'aoso, plus many more.

The festival program includes author talks, panel discussions, and a local bush walk. The festival will also feature the first readings of a play in development to commemorate the night of Ash Wednesday nearly 40 years ago, where 300 residents and their animals took shelter in the Macedon Railway Hotel as the bushfires raged outside.

Limited tickets are on sale now. Find out more at mountainwritersfestival.com.au
