Noted is Canberra's first ever experimental festival of words. An offshoot of You Are Here, Noted will have its inaugural year 20-22 March this year.
This will be a chance for writers, readers, publishers, the undefined and the interested to participate in the rejigging of the writers festival format. Encompassing a literary bar hop, multi-art collaborations, online interactions, unpredictable live events and formative workshops, Noted will be the reason you put down your books, pens and devices and the reason you pick them back up again.
Come and get Noted.
