Celebrate balarr at this year's Northern Territory Writers' Festival, June 23 – 26

NT Writers Festival returns to beautiful Larrakia land for four days of talks and immersive events celebrating story, language and culture shaped by place.

Founded in 1999, the NTWF aims to emphasise Australia's cultural and linguistic diversity.

This year’s festival includes a brilliant line-up of writers and storytellers from across the country. Join Hannah Kent, Larissa Behrendt, Delia Falconer and many other writers as they explore balarr which means ‘to light up’ or ‘to become light’. Larrakia land is surrounded by incredible displays of light, from sunsets, lightening storms to glistening waterfalls.

In light of the many crises we’re currently experiencing globally – writers will explore the concept of how light illumuniates darkness.

Early bird passes are available via this link.
