Irvine Welsh at Brisbane Writers Festival 2023
In 2023, BWF is thrilled to be hosting one of the most iconic writers of the last few decades. He’s a titan of transgressive fiction, a bard of punk and grunge, and a chronicler of the disaffected and dispossessed. He is, of course, Irvine Welsh – and he’s coming to Brisbane this May to talk crime writing, cult classics and the legacy of his brilliantly subversive back catalogue.
This year not only marks the release of Welsh’s propulsive new novel The Long Knives – it is also the 30th anniversary of Trainspotting, the title that defined a generation and became both the UK’s most shoplifted novel and a landmark film.
Don’t miss your chance to see this countercultural legend in a series of exclusive events at BWF 2023. Book now!
