Organisers of the Lismore Women’s Festival are inviting women to submit their ideas for next year’s event.
The first festival was held in March this year and had 57 events in the program.

The festival, which will be supported by the YWCA Northern Rivers, will showcase a program of workshops and forums that celebrate and support women.
Festival coordinator Emma Newman said this year’s festival was a resounding success.
‘There were an amazing and energetic 57 events last festival,’ she said.
