Sydney Writers’ Festival 2018 presents
ARCHITECTS OF NEW WORLDS

Whether it’s fallen societies, environmental catastrophes or tyrannical regimes, fantasy and science fiction allow authors to create dystopian worlds that ignite the imagination and force readers to reflect on our world’s trajectory.

Adele Walsh discovers how real-life concerns have influenced Jesse Andrews, an acclaimed novelist and screenwriter; Cally Black, who writes genre-smashing Young Adult sci-fi; Claire G. Coleman, whose debut novel explores a future Australia that is colonised again; and Jay Kristoff, a best-selling fantasy and sci-fi author.

Dates & Times:
Saturday 5 May 2018 at 1:30pm

Programmed in association with SWF Youth Curators. Supported by the City of Parramatta and the Department of Family and Community Services.
