Sydney Writers' Festival: Secondary School Days

30 Apr 2021

Past Event

The Secondary School Days program is a wonderful opportunity for students to listen, investigate and question, alongside some of Australia's leading writers for young adults. The program is designed to grow students' enjoyment of books, writing and reading by providing them with new perspectives, insight into writing processes and encouragement to consider their own creative pursuits.

The 2021 program features the internationally recognised, award-winning Australian authors: Garth Nix (Old Kingdom series); Zana Fraillon (The Bone Sparrow, The Lost Soul Atlas); Claire Zorn (The Sky So Heavy, One Would Think the Deep); and Leanne Hall (This Is Shyness, Iris and the Tiger). During interactive sessions, these authors will perform from their work, talk about their craft and take questions from the audience.

Tickets: $25 per student. One teacher free per 20 students, additional teachers at student price.
