Australia: Middletons gets behind another compelling Sydney Writers' Festival
Last Updated: 5 May 2012

Middletons is once again the exclusive legal partner for the Sydney Writers' Festival (SWF), a partnership that has been going strong for three years and continues to thrive today. SWF is a world class literary festival; the most successful festival of its kind in and one of the largest in the world.

Speaking about the partnership, Middletons national managing partner Nick Nichola said, "Sydney Writers' Festival is an important intellectual and cultural event in Sydney and therefore something with which we are proud to be associated. Middletons has worked closely with SWF to provide intellectual property and branding advice to help the festival grow year on year and it has been very rewarding for our firm to be a part of this."

This year, Middletons is supporting international speaker Hisham Matar and Italian economist Loretta Napoleoni's headlining events.

"We are very much looking forward to introducing both these remarkable authors to our clients," added Mr Nichola.

2012 festival will run from 14–20 May. Some 80,000 people are expected to attend over 300 events scheduled in this year's program, which includes prize winning local and international writers. Once again, more than 50% of the events will be free to the community.

Chip Rolley, SWF Artistic Director said, "Our line-up this year shows that Sydney Writers' Festival is the festival of choice for local and international writers and publishers. This is a testament to the reputation our partners have helped us build and I would like to thank Middletons for its ongoing support in helping us deliver this event to the people of Sydney."
