The 2016 PIAF Perth Writers Festival is almost at our doorstep and we are counting down the days! Running on 18–21 February, the festival celebrates the world of literature and the creative talents of writers and artists. The program offers a smorgasbord of workshops, seminars, panel discussions, family activities and free events. The festival is also a wonderful opportunity for you to meet Fremantle Press authors, whose books will be available at the festival bookshop.
