2023 Byron Writers Festival in pictures

Sessions and their audiences

We listened, we laughed, we cried. An unforgettable weekend of conversation and storytelling for all who attended.

Faces of the Festival

A place for connection. It was a delight to see people of all ages mixing it up over the three days. Testament to the power of storytelling.

Our new Bangalow site

Our stunning Festival site shone under a brilliant sun for three days. Enveloped by nature and adorned with an array of captivating sculptures, it was a treat to see guests kicking back and enjoying the atmosphere as much as the sessions.

Kids Big Day Out

Festival Sunday saw Tristan Bancks, Lucas Proudfoot, Eliza Hull, Charmaine Ledden-Lewis, Oliver Phommavanh, Solli Raphael, Amie Kaufman, Zanni Louise & Sarah Temporal entertain a tent packed full of excited young fans (and a few older ones!) at Kids Big Day Out.

Our crew, team and volunteers

Thank you, thank you, thank you! This outstanding Festival is possible because of you! Just a few of the (many) friendly faces that we are so proud of.
