Who run the world

  • presented by:

Friday 4 October , 12:00 pm – 1.00pm

Legally Blonde. Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Mean Girls. This is just some of the overly-quotable, meme-worthy media that has dominated our society in the last two decades. Join this discussion on our favourite pop culture icons, their successes and their pitfalls, and how they’ve shaped our art.

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!
