Byron Bay write-up in the Age: "less earnest, more relaxed"
According to the article, writer participation is a key element of what makes Byron Bay fun:
At the big festivals, writers tend to do their gigs, sign some books and disappear. But quite a few writers at this festival turn up in the audience at other sessions, asking questions and making comments from the floor, or just sitting quietly, doing a little professional development. They seem to like taking part as both performers and spectators.
