Amongst the many overused words of 2020, a strong contender for one of the most pernicious was ‘unprecedented’. This was, we were told, a year like no other. You could never have predicted this. But isn’t that always true? And never true? Experts in every field study the patterns of the past to extrapolate their visions for the future: the road maps and prescriptions, cautions and hopes. So to kick off 2021 – the year after The Unprecedented Year – Sydney Writers' Festival are going to get into the prognostication game.
