Programming for the young, by the young.

Tropical Grove, Perth Writers Festival Precinct

Tickets Free Event

  • Family Day


In 2016 we searched high and low to find ten young literature enthusiasts to join our programming team and take over the 2017 Perth Writers Festival Family Day.

Our chosen guest curators have been working tirelessly to create the sessions they want to see, featuring an array of the wonderful talent we have in our 2017 Festival program.

Join young innovators Navaneeth Nanda, Ella Popham, Benjamin Babriecki, Genevieve Clements, Jacob Gordon, Madeleine Mayo, Jarvis Hicks, Michelle Loh, Zigge Gray and Zoe Wallin as they present this series of events.

These inspiring young programmers will be working with Festival guests Donovan Bixley, Zana Fraillon, Jacqueline Harvey, R.A. Spratt, James Foley, Oliver Phommavanh, Lance Balchin and Julia Lawrinson across Family Day.

Join us in the Tropical Grove for this very special event – and experience programming for the young, by the young.
