Williamstown Literary Festival

Willy Lit Fest

Event Date: 16 June 2018 to 17 June 2018
Author / Presenters: Willy Lit Fest 2018

From Little Things…
The 15th Williamstown Literary Festival celebrates our belief that from little things extraordinary things grow. Little things make big things happen. Little words become sentences that blossom into compelling short stories and novellas. Sentences grow into revealing biographies, novels, and books of every kind; books that challenge and change us.

Josephine Wilson, Stan Yarramunua, Robert Hillman, Sarah Bailey, James Phelan, Leigh Hobbs, Graeme Simsion, Barry Hill, Jacqueline Harvey, Andy Griffiths, Ailsa Piper, John Marsden, Alice Pung and many more are all set to join us for a fabulous weekend.

And 2018 is a chance to celebrate Willy Lit Fest itself and the small group of friends who had a little idea that’s grown into a big hearted festival bringing the community together for an engaging weekend of conversation, learning and delight for the past 15 years. We invite you to join us at Williamstown Town Hall and Library.

We’re all set to celebrate the writers and performers who’ve grown along with the festival, showcase new and upcoming authors and rejoice in the creative people of Melbourne’s west across 51 events. We’ll meet more than 80 authors, poets, performers and playwrights across every genre; the steady, tenacious, unstoppable ones who don’t give up until their tales are told. And little by little we’ll discover and delight in their stories.

Tickets are on sale now. Buy online at www.willylitfest.org.au, in person at Williamstown Library and over the phone on 9932 4074
