Forté Covers Willy Lit Fest 2019

“A book festival is the perfect place to celebrate your love of literature with fellow fans, see your favourite authors in action, and of course, discover new writers and illustrators.

Taking place over two days in the Williamstown Town Hall and the Williamstown Library, The Williamstown Literary Festival (aka the Willy Lit Fest) promises a weekend feast of books, ideas, conversations, and performances.

Known as one of the country’s most respected wordfests, attracting some of Australia’s best-loved authors, each year there are over 80 authors who present and take part in over 50 sessions which discuss all topics from life, death, happiness, self, politics, ageing and science fiction, appealing to people of all ages and literary tastes. Many sessions involve question and answer format as well as panel discussion and interviews – and this year is no different.

Among the esteemed wordsmiths heading to Williamstown for the festivals 16th year, we’re particularly excited about the addition of Port Fairy-based writer Jock Serong.”
