In the historic gold mining town of Creswick, you will be exposed to innovative teaching approaches, practical workshops and thought-provoking seminars. In the birthplace of the artistic Lindsay family, be inspired by the picturesque scenery and elegance of the RACV Goldfields Resort venue. A panel session ‘How to get in the good books’ begins the day, before your choice of workshops from a range of teachers, writers, and academics.

Make a weekend of things literary and attend the Clunes Booktown Festival, 5th-6th May 2018
Along with author talks, panel discussions and literary luncheons, festival-goers can discover the largest collection of rare, out-of-print and collectable books in Australia, go inside heritage buildings, listen to live music, watch street performers, take a horse and cart ride and try their hand in a scrabble tournament.
The Clunes Booktown Festival is all about celebrating books and the great conversations and big ideas that come from them. The Festival is turning the stereotype of rural towns on its head: from slow, dusty and dry to a hub of ideas and the arts.
