Brisbane Writers Festival 2018
This year the Brisbane Writers Festival celebrates 56 years of bringing stimulating ideas, debate and discussion to Brisbane. First presented as the Warana Writers Convention in 1962, just six sessions were presented over one day. The BWF now presents over 150 events, with more than 20,000 literary lovers descending onto the State Library of Queensland and QAGOMA site annually in September to hear from their favourite authors.
From September 6-9 this year, the festival will be exploring the theme of what the world needs now and features established international writers, alongside locally based writers who collectively will take part in presentations, workshops and discussions that focus on the key cultural and political issues of our time. Be there and add your voice!
