SPORTS WRITERS FESTIVAL

COMING THIS SPRING/SUMMER 2018

The Sports Writers Festival celebrates sport through the written word.

It is a tribal gathering of writers and readers who share a passion for sport and great writing.

The traditional home of the Sports Writers Festival is Melbourne. A town famous for its obsession with sport and its love of the arts. In 2016, the festival expanded to include Sydney in the program.

The Sports Writers Festival is a highly anticipated feature of Australia’s literary and sporting calendar.
We hope you enjoy it.
