25 Years On The Page

For 25 years, Sydney Writers' Festival has gathered its beloved book-loving  community together across Sydney – we’ve been nestled between bookshelves at the State Library of NSW, stretched out beneath the wide, blue skies of Walsh Bay, scurrying through the open spaces of Carriageworks to our next session.  

But while we may gather in new places, there’s one place we’ve always been: beneath a coffee cup on your kitchen table, resting in the nook of your reading chair, folded up tight in a tote. We’ve been scribbled in, circled and lovingly smudged. 

We’re so proud to have been held in your hands all these years. 

We hope you enjoy revisiting a selection of our program covers below – or peruse through our online flip-book

Welcome to 25 years of Sydney Writers’ Festival.
