Mini Writers Festival: connecting local writers at Grafton Library

Grafton Library is springing into summer with a celebration of local writing talent!
An amazing group of local authors are set to visit the Grafton Library in December to share their latest works and offer insight and advice to budding writers in the Clarence Valley.
Writers of all ages and stages are welcome to join us in December and experience our Mini Writers Festival, hosted by a selection of local authors including; Claire Aman, Peter Watt, Julie Campbell, Russell Irving, Jim Chambers, Tommy Welham and more.
Regional Librarian, Kathryn Breward is excited to host this event: “We are thrilled to support budding local writers, and what better place to come together and tell our stories than your library?”
“Supporting local writers to share the inspiration behind their stories and connect is a wonderful opportunity. We look forward to welcoming storytellers from throughout the area and beyond to Grafton.”
The afternoon program will be held on Wednesday the 8th December 12pm -5pm and consist of 25-minute rolling author talks, as well as an opportunity to chat informally with the authors in the library meeting rooms.
Our group of writers will be sharing the inspiration and experiences behind their writing, offering writing advice, answering questions and selling copies of their published books.
The Mini Writers Festival is a great opportunity to meet famous local authors and polish up your writing skills. While you are here, why not join one of our regular writing groups?
Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to listen to our local authors share their work. For more information, or to book a seat, visit or give your local library a call. We hope to see you there!
