Byron Writers Festival 2016 will feature Pulitzer Prize winner William Finnegan, Cheryl Strayed, Charlotte Wood and Madga Szubanski. The festival is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year with a line-up of more than 150 writers, poets, journalists, and politicians. The festival takes place this year August 5-7, with workshops commencing August 1.
The Writers Festival is especially anticipating US journalist and author William Finnegan. Director Edwina Johnson said, “There is appealing synchronicity too in the fact that his Pulitzer Prize winning memoir Barbarian Days carries the sub-title: A Surfing Life.”
