Thank you for an incredible 2023 Festival!
The 2023 Festival, held 10–14 May, was an utter delight — what a wild ride! We are grateful and delighted to have welcomed 300 authors to nearly 150 events, pulling off a Festival that was warm and exciting and so very fulfilling.
We extend a huge thank you to our sponsors and partners, our many vibrant volunteers, speakers, moderators, provocateurs, poets, performance artists, visitors, the hardworking BWF team, and all of you who came to participate in this year's festival. Special shout out to the staff and crew from State Library of Queensland — thanks team!
We can't wait to see you all next year! The 2024 Festival will take place 29 May – 2 June.
Brisbane Writers Festival is held on the lands of the Yuggera and Turrbul people, on the banks of the Maiwar river. We recognise the important and ongoing contributions of Indigenous Australians to art and literature, and pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging.
