WAM 2016 Our tenth year saw 5,800 people attend WAM events and enter the writing competitions. Guest authors included: Barrie Cassidy, Jackie French, Bruce Whatley, Graeme Base, Libby Gleeson, Benjamin Law, Biff Ward, Helena Pastor, Anson Cameron, Debra Oswald, John Blay, Jane Harrison, Emilie Zoey Baker, Philly, Lorin Elizabeth, Fleur Ferris, Jason Steger, Mark Penzak and more. We laughed, cried and danced at Stereo Stories. We clicked, clapped and whooped at the WAM Slam. View photos here and a one-minute video wrap here.
