Writers in Action Mildura subject schedule

Writers in Action Mildura, 14-18 July 2016.

Note: Students are FREE to all events that do not include a meal. Your Writers in Action T-shirt is proof of enrolment (or you can flash your student ID card).

Sessions marked with a * are not included with your enrolment and are therefore optional. You need to book your own tickets for these. All other sessions are included as part of your enrolment package.

In addition to the listed venues, Writers in Action can use the Mildura Brewery Theatre Club (upstairs, 20 Langtree Avenue) as our “green room” on Friday and Sunday. So if you want to chill out with your classmates between sessions, that’s the place to go.
