Dunedin Writers & Readers Festival

The Festival will be held 6-9 May 2021. The programme has been released, you can pick up a copy from the bookshop (where we also have the books, if you'd like to read ahead) or visit www.dunedinwritersfestival.co.nz to explore what promises to be a rather wonderful array of home-grown talents and voices.
Sign up for the e-newsletter to keep informed about the Festival and any occasional 'pop-up' events throughout the year.
