Prepare to be stimulated and engaged by conversations, debates and discussions, as the Festival brings the world’s finest authors in real time via digital live-streaming project, Live & Local. As well as hearing new ideas from great thinkers, audiences have the opportunity to participate in Q&A sessions at each event, sending questions direct to the Sydney stage.

Following the success of the program in 2016, Sydney Writers’ Festival will continue to expand its horizons. Live and Local, our digital live-streaming project, will bring Festival sessions to cities and regional centres across the country.
