VU proud to join in 2015 Willy Lit Fest

VU staff and students are strongly represented at the 2015 Williamstown Literary Festival as judges, workshop presenters, panellists, volunteers and writing contestants.

This is the ninth year VU has been a major sponsor of the festival, a showcase of Australia’s best authors, poets, comedians, editors and actors in workshops and panel discussions.
