“I am thrilled to be appointed Artistic Director of this incredible literary Festival. I have been on the BWF programs team for the past two years, working passionately to deliver exceptional content to our Brisbane community. In 2020 we will once again curate and deliver a Festival that celebrates storytelling and the power of words and writing.
In 2020 I look forward to presenting inspiring and robust discussions that contribute to the cultural life of this beautiful city.”
