Brisbane Writers Festival

As Australia’s oldest continuous writers’ festival, BWF has a long and storied history of connecting communities, showcasing creativity and finding just the right words.

Each year, we welcome thousands of readers and writers to Brisbane’s beautiful South Bank to celebrate books, spark ideas and start conversations. With a diverse program of author panels, speeches, performances and more – including our Word Play and Love YA programs for younger readers – BWF has a story for everyone.
