From the Program Manager, Katherine Dorrington

Welcome to the 2013 Perth Writers Festival.

The past year has revealed amazing new talents and stand-out work from many of our favourite authors. Join them as they share their ideas and take our minds on flights of fancy with their extraordinary writing and vivid imaginings.

Events like ours are more relevant than ever in this age of fragmentation and disconnection, multiple reading devices and 24-hour news cycles. Writers festivals are a platform for public debate and the advent of Twitter allows audiences to become part of the discussion in new ways, changing both the nature and format of content and conversation. We invite you to engage with the Perth Writers Festival – tweet your experiences and ideas and help shape debate.

One innovative programming area in 2013 is Out of the Box. This series is a must for TV lovers, exploring the recent renaissance of television drama as a serious storytelling medium. It is a chance to take our favourite water cooler discussions onto the big stage. Whether your tastes range from literary fiction to crime, biography to politics there issomething for all readers and thinkers in this program; plan your choices in advance or wander down over the weekend.

I look forward to seeing you there.
