Brimbank Writers & Readers Festival 2023 – Call for Expressions of Interest

The Brimbank Writers & Readers Festival (BWRF) is an annual event that encourages a love of reading and literature, celebrates creativity and diversity, and promotes lifelong learning in Brimbank.

The ten-day program of workshops, author talks, panel discussions, creative & professional writing, storytelling and more is free of charge for the community.

In 2023 the festival will celebrate its 18th year and is set to take place from 16-25 March 2023, and we would like to invite the Brimbank community to be involved in the program.
