2024 Berry Writers Festival Highlights

David Marr - delivering the opening address at the Berry Writers Festival 2024
Noted Journalist and Author David Marr will deliver the 2024 Berry Writers Festival Opening Address.

We are delighted to announce that David Marr will be delivering the festival opening address on the evening of Friday, 25 October.

We've added a special Schools Day on Thursday, 24 October which will see several noted children’s authors visiting primary schools in Berry and surrounding communities. These are free events, offered at no cost to the schools or the students. 

In collaboration with our festival partner, the South Coast Writers Centre, we are hosting a half-day local-author showcase on Sunday, 27 October to support and develop new and emerging talent on the South Coast.

Additionally, we've expanded the weekend program (25-26 October) to include six extra sessions this year – and we’ve added a new venue, Studio 34 at 34 Alexandra Street.

The full festival program will be announced in August; make sure you sign up to our e-news so you don't miss out.
