Where stories live
Get ready to open your mind, to see and hear from some of the country's best-selling and emerging authors and participate in a discussion of ideas as the beloved Brisbane Writers Festival returns from 7 May to 9 May 2021.

In these COVID safe times, the festival has changed somewhat with an increased number of online events to support the face to face activities. But with that comes the added comfort and convenience of sharing a conversation with some of your favourite and soon to become favourites. Online events can be watched through your BWF ticketing account.

The festival is always thought-provoking as well as entertaining and this year, it continues to deliver on this history. Now in its 59th year, the festival features Brisbane writers, including Trent Dalton (Boy Swallows Universe and All Our Shimmering Skies) Mary Li (Mary's Last Dance) and journalist and author, Francis Whiting Melissa Lucashecko, Phil Brown and more.

National guests include Virginia Trioli, Matt Okine, Tim Flannery, and Robert Dessaix.

As part of the festival, LoveYa returns and is presented in partnership with Brisbane City Council Libraries, as a full day of free programming, especially for fans of young adult fiction. Join in as they explore identity and community, magic and responsibility, the universality of love, writing difficult topics into Young Adult literature.

And don't forget to check out The BWF Special Events with authors including high tea to meditation, film screening to poetry showcase and a final word. All of this plus, so much more.

To view the full program, head to the BWF page here to select your favourites. Please note that registration is required for all events.
