Five Writers Road Trip 2016

Word warriors hit the road again on their way to Byron Writers Festival 2016

According to numerologists the number five is the most dynamic and energetic of all single digit numbers. That is undoubtedly why the 2016 Byron Writers Festival is again hosting the Five Writers Road Trip. Five writers will head to five towns in five days, talking writing and reading at pubs, clubs, cafes, galleries, schools, libraries, service stations, bus stops…wherever there are readers, the fearless 555 will go.

This year’s Fab Five are Luke Carman, Kate Forsyth, GJ Stroud, Jesse Blackadder and Miles Merrill, captained by evil genius and holder of an unblemished van license, Zacharey Jane.

They will be beaming in to Coffs Harbour, Mullumbimby, Ballina, Brunswick and Lennox Head.

‘Word has spread since last year’s fantastic ‘Five Writers’ tour, sparking requests from readers throughout northern NSW for the 555 creative crew to visit their town. The Fab Five have a full coastal itinerary planned that’s bound to enthrall and entertain,’ said Festival Director, Edwina Johnson.

‘The 555 tour is tasked with carrying good books and fine writers to places no writers’ festival has ever gone before’
