ONE YEAR AGO...
IN this edition one year ago the Whitsundays were looking forward to the 2015 Whitsunday Writers Festival.
The event proved a stunning success, with locals, visitors and speakers all giving it high praise.
“It is, without a doubt, the best writers festival experience I have ever had from the perspective of a writer,” 2015 speaker, author and blogger Sam de Brito said at the time.
With this year’s festival having been held from September 2 to 4, it seems to have lost none of its shine.
Committee member Deborah Friend said it had been a sensation.
“We always pitch the festival as an intimate event where attendees can mingle and talk with the authors but it’s only when you look around the room and actually see this happening that it really hits home,” Ms Friend said.
