A THREE-day festival in Ar­madale will cel­e­brate those who weave magic with words.

After a suc­cess­ful in­au­gu­ral year in 2017, the City of Ar­madale’s Writ­ers’ Festival re­turns with ac­tiv­i­ties for both avid read­ers and tal­ented writ­ers to en­joy.

Ar­madale Mayor Henry Zelones said work­shops and talks would be held by WA au­thors in­clud­ing Liz Byrski, Nor­man Jor­gensen and Sab­rina Hahn.

“The festival will kick off on Fri­day with an evening of au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion dur­ing a dis­cus­sion and re­flec­tion of life ex­pe­ri­ences with Liz Byrski and Jodie Mof­fat, and how they in­formed the cre­ation of their an­thol­ogy Women of a Cer­tain Age,” he said.

“Satur­day will see sev­eral ses­sions through­out the day, the first be­ing a dis­cus­sion with some Aus­tralian crime writ­ers hosted by Ar­madale MLA Tony Buti and a tapas lunch in the Dale Bar and Bistro.

“For those with a green thumb, the fi­nal ac­tiv­ity on Sun­day is with mas­ter gar­dener and hor­ti­cul­tur­al­ist Sab­rina Hahn, who will in­spire you with her en­ergy and knowl­edge on how to cre­ate a sus­tain­able en­vi­ron­ment in your back yard.”

The City of Ar­madale Writer’s Festival is on Au­gust 31 to Septem­ber 2.

Ses­sions are free but places are lim­ited and book­ings are es­sen­tial.
