shifting sands

Held over three weekends each May, the Queenscliffe Literary Festival is a celebration of Australian writers, books and ideas in a program of events designed to entertain and stimulate.

Our theme for 2022 was Shifting Sands. As we had continued to navigate an uncertain world, we welcomed the insights and wisdom of our finest writers and thinkers to help us keep our footing. View our full 2022 program.

Begun in 2015, the festival is run by a voluntary committee of management as a not-for-profit incorporated association. All participants in the program are paid fees based on the Australian Society of Authors recommended rates.

The Borough of Queenscliffe is delighted to support the Queenscliffe Literary Festival, which has become an important cultural event  for locals and visitors alike. Best wishes to all participants and audiences for an engaging and enjoyable series of events.
