Brisbane Writers Festival


Brisbane Writers Festival (BWF) champions curiosity and creativity in Queensland. We connect and grow Queensland’s reading and writing communities through transformative cultural experiences that elevate the vitality of the literary arts and contribute to dynamic public conversation. The Brisbane Writers Festival, presented each May, welcomes thousands of readers, writers and thought-leaders to ignite imaginations, ask big questions, showcase literature, and celebrate stories in all forms.

Throughout the year Brisbane Writers Festival also presents a series of online and onsite events.
