Writing WA is excited to announce that we will be introducing this new state-wide initiative in 2020 to showcase and celebrate Western Australia’s many, many wonderful writers and illustrators, and the books they create.
Coinciding with Celebrate WA Day, Love to Read Local Week will take place from 29 May to 7 June (yes, we know that’s a bit longer than a week, but the more the merrier!).
Working with our state-wide network of member organisations and with other enthusiastic stakeholders, we intend to co-ordinate the most comprehensive and inclusive promotional campaign to be undertaken on behalf of W.A.’s writing and reading culture. Live events, online promotions, media activities and more will all feature in this unique celebration of West Australian literature.
More information about activities and opportunities to get involved will be released in the new year. In the meantime we invite writers and illustrators, publishers, booksellers, libraries, book clubs, schools and local governments to mark the week in your calendars and register your interest in being involved in this campaign:
