Back to programme


Join Victoria University Press and Scorpio Books to toast the launch of two new books, John Newton‘s comic verse novel, Escape Path Lighting, in which a drunken poet is obliged to choose between Art and Love; and Bernadette Hall‘s poetry collection Fancy Dancing: New and Selected Poems 2004–2020, which she describes as ‘as close as I’ll ever get to writing an autobiography’.

COVID-19 update. Ticket allocation is for the current Alert Level. If there is a change back to Level 2 at the time of the festival, tickets purchased under the original Level 2 requirements will be given preference. Refunds will be processed by Eventfinda for tickets no longer valid under updated conditions.
