Our Readers and Writers events bring the brightest and best writers, poets, bloggers, journalists, innovators and artists together with audiences to debate issues, to open up worlds and to share the stories that are at the heart of all human experience. We celebrate our local writers and thinkers in creating a space for us to have a conversation with our world.

This years Hawkes Bay Readers and Writers Festival will again take place during the Harcourts Hawkes Bay Arts Festival 26 September to 8 October.
