Digital Writers’ Festival 2015
February 11 — 22

In 2015, the Digital Writers’ Festival is taking livestreaming literary events to the next level.

Join wordsmiths and literary tinkerers to get a handle as they share their latest literary experiments! Yarn with food writers about culinary culture in a cross-continental dinner party! Take a crash course on writing the next viral YouTube smash! Take a literary tour of the globe with the help of the UNESCO Cities of Literature, or join The Stella Prize for a celebration of women’s writing.

The Digital Writers’ Festival all takes place online, right here, so viewers can participate in conversations with artists and peers located right across the planet.
