|Queueing for a session, SWF, Thursday|
As Autumn fades to a close, the Sydney Writers' Festival lays forth an abundance for both readers and writers. Held in the original wharves district of the city - rapidly becoming the artistic engine-room - the SWF offers well-nigh 60 events for each of four days with a few lead-up events for good measure and a hearty provincial programme as well.

Spread over 6 venues, with breaks of 30 minutes between sessions, there is a mix of ticketed and free events. The challenge is to craft a schedule that is not only stimulating and fun - but also physically possible. It must also take into account the massive queues that can build up. So choice must be strategic!

At least this year, the type of session I chose was more my style. I went for a heavier mix of non-fiction, current affairs and politics instead of too much fiction and doctors-wives issues.
Tomorrow: What sessions did I attend?
