It is with a great deal of regret we announce that, due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to cancel the Bellingen Readers and Writers Festival 2020.

As is the case with many other festival organisers, the committee is currently considering ways to deliver at least some of the programme virtually this year. We sincerely thank all those who supported the festival programme and hope for better circumstances in 2021.

Miriam Verbeek,
