The Melbourne Writer’s Festival is on from Friday the 26th of August until

Sunday the 4th of September.


I’m mentioning it now because some events have already sold out…

like P J Harvey presenting her poetry The Hollow of the Hand with photojournalist

Seamus Murphy reflecting their travels to Kosovo, Afghanistan and Washington DC 

a few years ago.


This is Polly Harvey’s only Australian date announced so far and it's non musical.

I have been following her Twitter updates hoping to hear about an Australian tour for her new album  The Hope Six Demolition Project.

I guess we’ll have to wait a little longer for that :)


The Melbourne Writer’s Festival does, of course have about 349 other wonderful events on including Alexei Sayle, Lionel Shriver, Richard Flanagan, Christos Tsiolkas, Benjamin Law  and much much more.
