Bring words to life
The Queenscliffe Literary Festival (QLF) is back for its third year with events being held across all weekends in May.

Queenscliffe Literary Festival

The theme this year is 'Storytelling' and will offer keynote speeches, interactive author talks as well as writing workshops, theatre performances and a focus on both adult and children's literature.

Words light up our world

The festival now incorporates the long-running community based "Sea of Words" festival, celebrating Australian author talent both rising stars and acclaimed authors.

Queenscliffe Literary Festival

With 15 events taking place at various venues in Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale, the QLF features book readings, panel discussions and author talks, and provides cross-arts experiences such as music and theatre performances all aimed at bringing words to life.

This year, the QLF features a program for local primary schools and kindergartens. This free day-long event is aimed at young readers inspiring them to read, write and draw more by connecting them with authors and illustrators. It will use role plays, story ideas, storytelling, live drawing, and drawing activities to encourage participation.
