A better picture for Adelaide Writers’ Week

Local and international writers will unite both live and online as part of Adelaide Writers' Week's 2022 offerings.

‘A Better Picture’ will be the theme explored and adopted by writers both home grown and from across the globe at the 37th iteration of Adelaide’s Writers’ Week (AWW) over 5-10 March. AWW launches its full program today in which director Jo Dyer presents her fourth and final festival, with its generous spread of 165 guests.

Dyer elaborated on some key events in the packed week of stimulation: ‘We’ll hear from some of our best contemporary authors such as Emily Bitto, Michael Mohammed Ahmed, Jennifer Down and Michelle de Kretser, as well as events celebrating the legacy of some of our greats, including Les Murray, Charmian Clift and Donald Horne.
