This is Not Art, Newcastle's independent arts festival, will once again descend on the NSW city for the October long weekend. The festival — which will this year run from Thursday, September 29 until the Sunday, October 2 — sets its focus on experimental art and blurring the lines between artistic mediums.

An umbrella sheltering a number of festivals, this year TiNA is home to the Crack Theatre Festival, National Young Writers' Festival and Critical Animals.

The National Young Writers' Festival has managed to net over 100 writers from all over the country and New Zealand for a series of panels, workshops, readings and debates. Rapper and poet Omar Musa, Jennifer Down, whose Our Magic Hour took the 2014 Victorian Premier's Literary Award, and Stella Prize shortlisted Ellen van Neerven are just a few of the featured writers expected to storm Newcastle throughout the four-day fest.
