Fake News!

  • presented by:

Friday 4 October , 6:30 pm – 7.30pm

  • Free
  • Reading

Can you tell the difference between a genuine Trump tweet or a meme bot? How about a Buzzfeed Top 10 list and a collection of randomly selected items from your bedside drawer? Journalists and comedians combine powers to bring you FAKE NEWS! – a reading presenting real or imagined news articles. Prizes will be given to audience members who guess what’s what correctly.

Are you coming?

Our festival is 100% free. It’s always free. But this year, National Young Writers’ Festival is asking for you to register for the festival. Registering for our festival means you can help us maintain and secure our ongoing funding. We rely on funding to provide this opportunity to artists and audiences. We need to understand who exactly we provide this opportunity to.

Can you support NYWF?

During registration, you’ll see an opportunity to buy a NYWF supporter ticket. If you love our festival, we encourage to help support our festival by becoming an NYWF supporter. The “ticket” doesn’t get you into anything extra, it’s a contribution to support the ongoing running costs of our festival: which is 100% free to attend!
