Past highlights of the 2021 WAM festival
This year’s 2021 Write Around the Murray festival theme is ‘The Things We Love’. We’ll explore the people, places and things we love, in all their challenging complexity and diversity.
Join us for an exploration of the things that make life worth living. That call on our courage, resilience and creativity.
We invited half a dozen of this year’s programmed authors to record short responses to the festival theme. We present the first of them here for your enjoyment and delight.
