Welcome to Australia’s only non-fiction writing festival. Word for Word is a unique annual literary event showcasing non-fiction writing in all its many facets and forms with world-renowned writers, dynamic panel discussions and “in conversation” sessions.
Held in the iconic and multi-award winning Geelong Library & Heritage Centre, the Word for Word National Non-Fiction Festival takes full advantage of this stunning state-of-the-art facility known locally as “The Dome”.
Memoir, biography, journalism, blogs, history, travel, song-writing or poetry – non-fiction writing may take any number of forms. While the format can vary, one factor remains consistent throughout, and that is truth.
