Byron Writers Festival brings stories of hope, courage and change

Enova Community Energy has proudly come on board as a supporter of the Byron Writers Festival and has two Sunday passes to the 2019 Festival to give away!


Keeping stories alive throughout the year

Byron Writers Festival plays an important role in keeping story telling alive and providing a platform for engagement with new ideas, broad and intelligent thinking and inspiration.

Byron Writers Festival is a non-profit members organisation presenting workshops and events year-round, including the annual Festival.

With the Festival program now available, there are so many opportunities to experience stories, sideshow events, workshops and the children’s events.

Throughout the year Byron Writers Festival also runs a membership program, hosts events, offers mentorships and other activities to create shared moments of human connection through the exchange of ideas and the adventure of storytelling.


Hope, courage and change

The annual Byron Writers Festival is Australia’s largest and leading regional celebration of storytelling, literature and ideas.

According to Festival Director Edwina Johnson, “Now more than ever our world needs writers, environmentalists, poets, commentators, politicians and artists who together can shape stories of hope, courage and change.”

Enova CEO Felicity Stening said, “As a new kind of energy company seeking to disrupt the current fossil-fuel dependent model, Enova’s is a story born out of hope for a coal-free energy future, the courage to launch something different based on ethical values and a mission to change the way energy is done in Australia.

“It was inspiration to create something new and different that sparked the creation of Enova, as Australia’s first community-owned electricity retailer. We’re passionate about people’s agency to create change, independent thinking and community resilience. We’re proud supporters of Byron Writers Festival and all that it brings to the Northern Rivers as well as the creative voices of regional Australia.”


Two Sunday passes to give away

This year’s Byron Writers Festival will take place from 2 – 4 August 2019 and Enova’s sponsorship of mentorships will commence in Spring this year.

To celebrate the Festival, we’ve got a double Sunday pass to the 2019 Byron Writers Festival to give away. 

UPDATE: Congratulations to Lynn Denise who has won two Sunday passes to the Byron Writers Festival. Thank you so much to the hundreds of passionate folk who entered our competition. We hope you get to enjoy the Festival!
