Full program

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 how we can create a better future. 

Begun in 2015 the festival is run by a voluntary committee of management as a not-for-profit incorporated association. We are also proud to support ‘Kids Day’, a free in-school program for local children. All participants in the program are paid appearance fees.

Download the full program as a pdf or visit week one, week two or week three to make bookings. Alternatvely you can browse and book via presenter.
