    The 12th annual Australian Writers Week in China was held from 20-27 March 2019. This initiative was presented by the Australian Embassy in Beijing, Consulates-General in Shanghai, Chengdu, Guangzhou and Hong Kong and the Australian Office in Taipei, with the support of the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund. 

    Leading and emerging Australian authors Graeme Simsion, Julie Koh, Morris Gleitzman, and Richard Fidler shared their stories at literary festivals, bookshops, libraries and universities across nine cities: Beijing, Shanghai, Kunming, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Foshan, Xi’an, Hong Kong and Taipei.

    Australian Writers Week in China celebrates the quality and diversity of Australian literature through forming local partnerships with publishers, retailers, educational and cultural institutions, and the Australian Studies Centres in Chinese universities.
