    By Stella Kinsella

    The 18th Annual Williamstown Literary Festival returns to the Williamstown Town Hall on 18th-20th of June. Among the festival highlights are visiting authors from interstate.

    After a year online, the much loved winter west festival is delighted to be back in the frame.

    Nardi Simpson arrives from Sydney to celebrate her Black and Write Fellowship sensation The Song of the Crocodile. This debut novel is a stunning work of fiction and made it to the long list of the Miles Franklin Award. She will be in conversation on Saturday June 19 with comedian and author Nelly Thomas.

    Cassandra Pybus arrives from Hobart for a conversation with Wild Dingo Press publisher Cathi Lewis. Truganini is a deep and profound contribution to Australia’s true history.

    Young Adult fans can spend an hour with three of Australia’s creative powerhouses when Amie Kaufman and Lili Wilkinson joins Perth-based Holden Shepperd for a deep dive into speculative fiction.

    Tickets are already selling fast and many sessions will sell out. Get onto www.willylitfest.org.au without delay.
