Before the internet, before television, before the written word, we had stories. Writers were called storytellers, messengers and troubadours, and travelled from place to place bringing news and spinning yarns.
In this spirit, the Byron Bay Writers Festival is proud to announce Five Writers, Five Towns in Five Days, a literary roadshow starting at the Queensland border and ending when the words run out.
On board the tour bus will be award winning writers Craig Sherborne, Nick Earls, Samuel Wagan Watson, Ashley Hay and Zacharey Jane.
The authors will be accompanied on their quest by exciting young film maker and Lennox Head local Tim Eddy and blogger extraordinaire Angela Meyer, recording and recounting as they go.
‘Of course, each day ends at the pub for a few hours of literary mayhem and… well, that would be giving away the ending,’ says Johnson. ‘You’ll have to join the five writers to find out for yourself!’
Be at the Lennox Head Library on 29 July at 10.00 am when the fun kicks off firstly with Nick Earls and then at 11.30 with Samuel Wagan Watson and Zacharey Jane, and then regroup at 6.30 in the evening at Club Lennox for an evening of readings, storytelling and anecdotes.
