#Litfest2444  is  Port Macquarie’s inaugural  storytelling  festival,  engaging  young  minds  with  the written, spoken,  visual  and  digital  word.  The festival is open to  all  high  school students  throughout the Mid  North  Coast.  Festival workshops will address traditional and digital forms,  providing students  with  invaluable  skills  towards  future  employment  and  aim  to  enhance  the  enjoyment  of storytelling through traditional and modern mediums. The Festival will be an annual event attracting an audience of around 800 students. Set in the idyllic seaside backdrop of Port Macquarie the festival will be conducted at the state of the art MacKillop College campus.

Writing and storytelling is at the core of the program, driven by ideas that animate all types of literature via diverse mediums. Writers have been sourced from various forms and backgrounds, including modern novelists, screenwriters, journalists, musicians, poets, along with many leading public figures.  There literally is something for every student at #Litfest2444.
