Last night, the Melbourne Writers Festival launched its program. I’ve been lucky enough to be interning there for the last few months and last night was the culmination of a lot of preparation and nerves. While the festival does not start until late August (hence about a month from now), it was really exciting to finally tell the world what we have been working on. You can head on over to the website to have a browse of the awesome events on offer – I know I already knew which events I’ll be going to. Tavi and Boris Johnson are high on the list!
Lisa, our director, gave a great speech – that’s her above. To me, I’d already heard what was on offer, but it was exciting to hear everyone’s reactions to who was coming to the festival. Well done Lisa and all of the team! It’s been a pleasure working with you so far and I cannot wait for the festival to start.
