Newcastle Writers' Festival

Michelle Morgan - Sunday, April 06, 2014

Even the rain couldn't keep the crowds away from the Newcastle Writers' Festival this weekend. It was a fantastic program with many highlights including the panel discussion on Radical Newcastle that looked at inspirational aspects of Newcastle's colourful history, the high-energy seminar by Kathryn Heyman on the art and craft of writing fiction, and the thought-provoking discussions about crime fiction and anti-heroes with Garry DisherAngela Savage and Adrian McKinty.
