Nix and Williams Guests at SWF

This year's Sydney Writers' Festival (Monday May 27th to Sunday June 2nd 2002), will feature both Adelaide's Sean Williams and Sydney local Garth Nix.

As described on its website, the Sydney Writers' Festival 2002 is a "week-long annual celebration of reading and writing featuring published writers across genre and form from across Australia and around the world". In their efforts to "reflect the range of writing from literary and popular fiction, poetry, screenwriting, journalism to serious non-fiction", and no doubt in support of their belief that "by representing the work of young writers and cutting-edge topics, [the Festival] should be attractive to young audiences and create new audiences for writing as well as attracting and consolidating established literary audiences", they've chosen to add Adelaide's pop culture guru Kirsty Brooks—along with lesser-known partner Sean Williams and fellow Australian genre powerhouse Garth Nix—to this year's guest list. (Others Festival guests include genre writers Kate Forsyth, Sophie Masson, Felicity Pulman, Venero Armanno, Cecilia Dart-Thornton and Anna Fienberg, and genre illustrator Kim Gamble.)

Sean and Garth will both be participating in the Seymour Theatre Centre School Program which involves teaching workshops and "meet the writer" sessions, and Sean will be helping to judge the "Can You Survive the Drive?" short fiction competition.

Some 90% of events have no entry charge, and the Festival takes in venues across the city. For more information, email the SWF.
