Writers on the Road, the free Byron Writers Festival touring program, is exploring the new normal this year with a crew of literary mavericks. Acclaimed authors and artists on-board include Bigambul illustrator Dub Leffler, writer and recovering teacher Gabbie Stroud, author and filmmaker Benjamin Gilmour and Yuwaalaraay author and musician Nardi Simpson.

Now in its seventh year, Writers on the Road takes award-winning Australian authors, illustrators and poets to regional towns in northern NSW for free school workshops and community events. It boasts alumni of renowned writers including Kristina Olsson, Michael Robotham, Jock Serong, Lian Hearn, Ashley Hay, Nick Earls, Ellen van Neerven and Omar Sakr, among many others.

The series of events will take place in the evenings from Monday 30 November to Friday 4 December in Ballina, Kingscliff, Harwood and Bellingen, as well as school events in Bonalbo.

All events are free and all are welcome. Come share your own ideas about the real world with these wonderful writers and creatives.
