This glittering celebration of excellence in Australian writing is held on the first night of the Sydney Writers’ Festival. Established in 1979, the New South Wales Premier’s Literary Awards have recognised hundreds of talented Australian writers, including novelists, poets, playwrights, scriptwriters and authors of non-fiction and children’s books. With prizes totalling $305,000, the awards are among the nation’s richest and most prestigious.

This event has been organised to be presented with an Auslan Interpreter.
