24 live events over

3 weekends

Sadly, we have finally conceded and called off our plans to reschedule the Weekend Three events originally planned for our May Festival. 

We were fortunate to successfully stage Weekends One and Two back in the carefree days of May. Ticket sales broke our previous records and the audience showed up in COVIDSafe droves. Thank you to all those who have held onto their tickets in the hope of seeing the Weekend 3 events eventually staged — your support gave us the impetus to keep trying.

We look forward to sharing ideas, wisdom and laughs with you all in 2022.

Please email to advise Viv ( vivfog.qlf@gmail.com ) if you have queries regarding refunds or donations to the Festival.

14-30 May 2021

rethink

The Queenscliffe Literary Festival is a celebration of Australian writers, books and ideas featuring some of our finest authors and thinkers in a program of events designed to stimulate thought and discussion.

Our theme for 2021 is Rethink. With every aspect of our lives affected by the tumultuous events of 2020, let’s take time to dwell on what we have learned and how we can do better.

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.
