The Inaugural Apollo Bay Writers Festival (2016)

For more information, visit the Apollo Bay Writers Festival website here.

After more than twenty years of Apollo Bay’s Warm Winter Words literary event, the ante has been upped to create the inaugural Apollo Bay Writers Festival. This year’s theme, ‘everyone has a story’, is kicked off with a Life Writing workshop facilitated by the wonderful Lee Kofman and sponsored by Writers Victoria (SOLD OUT). Then, boosted by the Brexit vote, Apollo Bay debates the option to secede from Australia—hosted by Isobelle Carmody. Sunday morning there are limited places for a spoken word workshop run by Hip Hop artist, Morganics. In the afternoon the well known and loved Warm Winter Words featuring Emilie Zoey Baker, Lee Kofman and Robynne Nelson. The weekend closes with Ab Slam, Apollo Bay’s first poetry slam, hosted by the international prize winning Emilie Zoey Baker. To book, visit the Apollo Bay Writers Festival website. Proudly presented by Apollo Bay Arts Inc.
