Sydney Writers Festival Words to Live By

The 2011 Sydney Writers’ Festival, running from May 16 to May 22, is being promoted with an integrated advertising campaign focusing on the theme, “Words to Live By”. A 45 second animated television commercial highlights the social, political and historical importance of writers in society. Print and poster advertising continues the theme, while a program guide has been distributed through the Sydney Morning Herald. Mini magazines have been produced with free post card advertising company Avant Card. The Festival’s site includes links to a Facebook page and Twitter page and will be supplemented with an iPhone app serving as an electronic event guide.
