The NT Writers’ Festival returns to Alice Springs this year and runs from 18-21 May, on the cusp of the desert winter.
In 2017 storytellers, songwomen and writers will come together under the theme Crossings | Iwerre-Atherre.
We invite you to make the journey to the heart of the country to consider all kinds of crossings – linguistic, cultural and geographic; borders and boundaries; migrations, movements and diasporas.
