Can't make it down south for the Sydney Writers Festival? Counting down until Brisbane's own writers fest comes around later this year? There's one thing that's cheaper than a plane fare and quicker than simply waiting: Brisbane Powerhouse's Sydney Writers Festival Livestream.

While the full fest isn't being beamed into the New Farm venue, seven sessions across May 5 and 6 will be streamed live on the Turbine Platform. And attendees can also ask questions, which'll be sent directly to the Sydney stage.

The Live & Local lineup includes sessions on a range of topics, whether you want to catch a chat about the interplay between technology and power, or ponder economic disparity — or just settle in all day Saturday and until lunchtime on Sunday. Specific highlights include a panel on women in technology, bestselling author Johann Hari presenting a talk on depression and anxiety, and Annabel Crabb's BooKwiz featuring ABC 7.30 anchor Leigh Sales, ABC radio's Richard Fidler and RocKwiz host Julia Zemiro.
