Berry Writers Festival
  21st - 23rd October 2022   

The mission of a Writer's Festival

Lisa Dempster is perfectly accurate in her assessment of the mission of a writer’s festival: Supporting the machinations of the publishing industry – promoting and supporting writers, celebrating and selling books, creating networking opportunities – is only one aspect of the mission of a writer’s festival. The other major purpose is to entertain and inspire audiences, adding to the creative and intellectual life of a city, and promoting the values of literature and literacy overall.
