14-30 May 2021
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.
