Somerset Storyfest

Book lovers and storytellers rejoice! The city’s very own writers’ festival is heading to town next month with an action-packed line up of authors, book launches, workshops, panels and free, family-friendly community events set to take over the Gold Coast.

Held from March 25–27, the 31st annual Somerset Storyfest will see over thirty of the country’s most celebrated authors, illustrators and artists converge on the Gold Coast to inspire the next generation of writers and avid readers.

The festival will be an opportunity for people of all ages to bury their noses in a new book, discover some of Australia’s acclaimed authors and let their imaginations come to life as they wander in and out of author sessions, workshops and events throughout the week.

Special guests headlining this year include Hannah Kent, Sofie Laguna, Uncle Billy, Josh Arnold, Zowie Baumgart, Gabriel Bergmoser, Katrina Nannestad and more.

In between daily sessions with authors and book signings at the Book Shop, visitors to the three-day festival can also revel in a series of special public events including the annual Literary Lunch and the annual Long Table Dinner.

Tickets are now on sale. For more information about the festival program and event details please visit
