Journeys to Alternate Worlds...

WAM 2015 will see the LibraryMuseum become the TARDIS that transports you to future life on Earth, magical realms, distant galaxies and the unexplored reaches of your own mind.

Our twin themes of speculative fiction and the environment have drawn some of Australia's best fantasy and science fiction authors, leading climate change writers, astronomy photographers, illustrators, artists, poets, performers and more, to create our most exciting and ambitious program to date.

Details will be made available when we launch the festival program on Wednesday 5 August. In the meantime, we'll share news and announcements about our plans and guests via the monthly e-news. Register at left to keep up with the goss.


Join us to launch the WAM program

Wednesday 5 August, 10.30am at the LibraryMuseum, Free

Doctor Who fans will be in time-travel heaven as Rob Lloyd (aka the Time Lord) launches the Write Around the Murray festival program with his hilariously nerdy Dr Who themed comedy. Come for a laugh, pick up a program and grab a sneak peek at the festival's opening night leading man (pictured above), who looks just a little bit like the Tenth Doctor don't you think? 

RSVP here, we'd love to see you!
