Equally as impressive and well matched to their subjects is the stable of Australian interviewers. Details about all the writers and their conversation partners are on the Bad Sydney website.

One of the huge advantages of this online format is that we audience members can ask questions as all the sessions are live.

I recommend the very reasonably priced whole of festival ticket ($50), but single session tickets are also available.

The Australian writers’ component of the festival is planned to go ahead live in November, depending on COVID-19 developments at that time.

Bad Sydney also presents BAD ALL YEAR online events and you can sign up to their newsletter to keep in the loop.
