Word for Word Festival

Event Date: 19 November 2021 to 21 November 2021

Head into Geelong – just over an hour’s drive from Melbourne – if you’re looking for a festival dedicated solely to Australian nonfiction. Hosting its eighth annual festival this year, Word for Word is a forum for thought, connecting writers, academics and festivalgoers over discussions on topics such as the climate crisis, global politics, health and history.

Last year Word for Word hosted its inaugural nonfiction schools festival program, in collaboration with Australia’s leading First Nations publisher Magabala Books. With more than 4,000 students from 41 schools across Victoria registered in sessions, they’re rolling out another schools program this year too.
