Australians, Let us all rejoice

Creative gratitudes from the participants of the 2015 Bendigo Writers Festival

It’s not just the participants of the 2015 Bendigo Writers Festival we’ll have to thank for the wonderful conversations that will take place on August 7-9. We should also give a nod to the countless others who have inspired our participants to become the writers, readers and thinkers they are today.

When we asked 2015 participants who had influenced their work, we expected varied and interesting responses, but what stands out clearly is the passion for their fellow Australian writers. From Puberty Blues inspiring Kirsten Krauth’s novel just_a_girl to Les Murray’s poetry striking a chord with Opera Australia’s, Lyndon Terracini and bibliophile Geoffrey Cains, there’s a lot of love for the great work that comes out of this wide brown land.
