Sydney Writers Festival All Day YA GIVEAWAY!

Have you seen the amazing lineup of YA superstars at this year’s Sydney Writers Festival? Their ‘All Day YA’ event is coming up on Saturday 4 May and it’s a smorgasbord of all your favourite Australian and international authors.

Dhonielle Clayton (The Belles) and Neal Shusterman (Scythe), both longlisted for the 2019 Silver Inky Award, will be there alongside Mackenzi Lee (The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue), who was shortlisted for the 2018 Silver Inky Award.

2019 Gold Inky longlisted authors Lili Wilkinson (After the Lights Go Out) and Erin Gough (Amelia Westlake) will also be there, as will Alison Evans (Ida, Highway Bodies), who was longlisted for the 2018 Gold Inky Award.

All of your Inky Awards faves will be joined by heaps of your soon-to-be-faves like poet Omar Sakr, youth curator Ali Al Haj, and editors Rebecca Lim and Ambelin Kwaymullina.

Over the course of one jam-packed day at Riverside Theatres in Parramatta all these amazing writers and thinkers will be talking about everything from the future of our planet to the politics of inclusiveness, diversity and representation. And of course there’ll be a panel on fan culture and why it’s so darn important (what kind of YA event wouldn’t spend an hour or two talking fanfiction??)

Oh and if that wasn’t enough, Will Kostakis and Gabrielle Tozer will be hosting TeenCon2019 where you can get all the latest goss about all things YA: there’ll be info about upcoming releases, an Ask the Industry Insiders panel, and a FREE BOOK for every attendee!!
