Showing the write stuff
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.
