Now in its ninth year in 2016, Australian Writers Week in China is a celebration of Australian stories and voices shared with Chinese audiences.
This year, Australian Writers Week focuses on award-winning and internationally-recognised Australian authors who will share their stories at international literary festivals, bookshops, libraries, schools and universities at twelve cities across China.

Australian Writers Week in China is presented by the Australian Embassy Beijing and Australian Consulates-General in Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu. These events are made possible through the generous support of our partner, the Copyright Agency Limited Cultural Fund. The Embassy also acknowledges support from The Bookworm Literary Festival and The Opposite House, and is proud to work closely with China’s Australian Studies Centre network to bring author events to university students across China.
