An annual weekend of wonderful writers, curious audiences and beautiful Marlborough vistas
SPEAKEASY Writers Fest features some of the most captivating authors in Aotearoa today, both fiction and non-fiction. Over two days, we're inviting you to push your mind to be observant, let curiosity take over, and challenge your perceptions with modern literature.
The festival includes talks, interviews, Q&A sessions, and book signings with award-winning authors, poets, adventurers, and scholars.
Featuring: Abbas Nazari, Christine Leunens, Jacqueline Bublitz, Jared Savage, Jo Morgan, Julie Zarifeh, Mat Ward, Rosetta Allan, Zirk van den Berg.
Their books have been selected for the beautiful way they allow readers to discover and explore elements of everyday life, letting them into the lives of others and connecting to characters as they overcome difficulties and challenges.
