The Festival is a growing community and literary event. From humble beginnings, we have expanded to incorporate workshops, publishing consultations, author talks and book signings.
With a strong focus on promotion and support of Australian writers and publishers, the Festival aims to educate and encourage aspiring writers and illustrators throughout the region.
Many of our presenters are at the top of their field, though we also love to promote newly emerging talents. The topics and genres presented aim to reflect the diversity of writers within Australia.
In 2020, we will be running sessions concurrently across three rooms, devoted to presentations by children's, YA and adult writers. There will be an editor panel discussion and we will announce the winners of our annual picture book writing competition.
