“My experience of the Burdekin Readers and Writers Festival was a moving one.
People at panels were open and intimately involved with the ideas behind books, with the writers who wrote them. Remote or rural Australians often miss out on experiences common to city dwellers, and everyone who attended the festival who I personally spoke to enjoyed the festival, and felt inspired or moved by it in some way. Fran Whiting in particular was clearly loved by her audience- it was very moving to see.”
