Countdown to the Berry Writers Festival 2022

36 weeks to go….

Let the countdown being

All my worries that it might be hard to build up the momentum again after the heartache of last year’s postponement are disappearing and I am feeling super optimistic. Mary Cunnane and I have already been working on our programme and we have some very exciting additions to our line-up. Many of the literary ‘stars’ from 2021 have also agreed to participate. Fifteen of the authors who have accepted our invitations have new books which will be appearing in 2022, so we’ll also be able to introduce you to the latest in the literary world. 

Christa Wood has done the time-consuming heavy lifting of submitting a funding application to Create NSW and we are exploring other funding options too, so that we can have the fullest programme possible.

Monday March 14th will be the first volunteer meeting and I am so looking forward to catching up with all the lovely volunteers from last year and meeting new recruits. Put it in your diary!

As a teaser… the amazing Ceridwen Dovey will be presenting an exciting new collaborative work, Mothertongues, with Eliza Bell and Keppie Couts that blends prose, poetry, and song, htand David Dufty brings us a new book: Nabbing Ned Kelly in which he goes back to the records to uncover the real story of the police officers who pursued the Kelly Gang.

Please get in touch if you have any suggestions or queries, in the meantime, watch this space.

Cheers, Suzanne
