13-29 May 2022
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 is Shifting Sands. As we continue to navigate an uncertain world, we welcome the insights and wisdom of our finest writers and thinkers to help us keep our footing.
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.
