Melbourne Writers Festival 2014 is here

Posted on 22 August 2014



The Melbourne Writers Festival Hub this is Optic Kitchen and Bar at Federation Square. As of today it’s decked out in MWF 2014’s gorgeous vibrant-without-jarring yellow banners and flags and posters and custom cut booth covers. Kudos to whoever came up with the booth covers. They look awesome.

IMG_0622I’ve spent a lot of time at Optic and Fed Square in general working on festivals and other events. I like it because the staff are down-to-earth professionals who always notice when you need something, can carry four plates at a time, and pour sparkling wine into an upright glass. The food is top quality although a bit expensive for my freelancer budget, the space is lovely and malleable, and there’s a full glass wall looking out over the square.

If you’re looking for me over the next 10 days, I’ll either be at a festival event or here at Optic. So come say hi. Look for a mid-30s brownish-whitish woman playing with her hair while typing, reading or chatting 🙂
