Now in its 6th year, Bendigo Writers Festival assembles a brilliant cast of speakers for a long weekend that goes to the heart of who we are, what we believe, and where we're at.

From the grand old Capital Theatre to the beautiful new Ulumbarra Theatre, in and around the View Street precinct, Bendigo is especially brilliant at Festival time.

More than 90 events give you a huge choice, with discussions about identity and politics, health and wellbeing, growing up and growing old, the books we love and the people we admire, music, food, fashion and comedy.

Whether you take a quick dip or immerse yourself from top to toe, you're very welcome to share what's on offer at Bendigo Writes Festival 2017.
