Writing Festivals, Reading Festivals, Literary Festivals, Feminist Festivals, Festivals of ideas. Festivals, Festivals, Festivals! This podcast is all about the Festivals.

The Writes4Festivals Podcast covers all sorts of writing festivals from around regional NSW (and sometimes beyond). The Mudgee Readers Festival, The National Young Writers Festival, Storyfest and the Feminist Writers Festival are just some of the festivals you will see popping up on this podcast...and we aren't done yet!

Each festival brings it's own unique flavour and perspective on life and writing through panel discussions, readings, intimate conversations with writers and some truly hilarious comedy routines. Via the Writes4Festivals podcast you can be a part of it all with the added bonus of extra interviews and commentary from speakers and organisers.

Writes4Festivals - brings the festival to you.

Proudly brought to you by Writes4Women with the support of Create NSW and Writing NSW.

Waiting for Elijah is an account of a tragedy that didn't have to happen - the 2009 shooting go 24 year old Elijah Holcombe by a police officer in Armidale. It is also an intense, forensic deconstruction of the extended legal proceedings that followed and a heartbreaking portrait of a family's grief. 

Kate Wild and Sharelle Fellows discuss this compelling narrative and the research and reportage that went into it.
