Queensland Poetry Festival
The 21st Queensland Poetry Festival (QPF) turns up the volume on the finest local and international poetic voices from August 24‒27 at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts and a host of other exciting satellite venues. Featuring more than 120 artists in more than 80 sessions over four dynamic days and nights, 75 percent of sessions are free. Building upon over 6,000 attendees last year, QPF2017 is the festival’s biggest and most ambitious venture yet. Redefining the poetic artform, the packed line-up includes slam poets, live music, panels, workshops, visual art installations, spoken word, film screenings, performance art, comedy and an inaugural poetry Publishers and Zine Fair.
