Melbourne Writers Festival

It's once again time for the Melbourne Writers Festival - always a prominent event on the Melbourne arts calender. This year's festival runs from the 25th of August to the 4th of September and it's good to see the focus on visual storytelling ballooning in size and making a real splash, with panels on a number of topics certain to draw people in...

All ridiculous word play aside it's great to see Melbourne becoming the country's focal point for the comic art form. Tomorrow the graphic newspaper Drawn From Life will be distributed free across Melbourne. Be sure to pick up a copy and read it on your commute!

There's a story from 'The Age' about Drawn From Life and the MWF's focus on graphic novels and comics avaliable to read here.
