"The Mildura Writers' Festival, held over a weekend in late July, consolidated its reputation as one of Australia's most pleasurable literary festivals"
Peter Rose, AUSTRALIAN BOOK REVIEW

"I've also done the Writers' Festival in Mildura, which I loved, because they gave me an award for my poetry and because I love Stefano de Pieri's food"
