Since 1998 the NT Writers’ Centre has presented the NT Writers’ Festival annually, alternating between Darwin (Wordstorm) and Alice Springs.

With a thousand miles between locations, the festival shifts from the tropics to the desert, from wet to dry, from coastal to inland, from Larrakia to Arrernte country, creating a kind of contrasting tone or character between festivals which reflects something of the diversity – environmental, cultural and social – of the Northern Territory itself.

The Festival is unique in Australia for profiling Indigenous Australian, South-East Asian, and Northern Territory voices.
