This August 3-5, over 130 writers and thinkers will converge on the iconic coastal town of Byron Bay to ponder the written word, alongside thousands of other book lovers. Now in its 22nd year, Byron Writers Festival has become famous for its relaxed and friendly vibe, open-air beachside location and compelling conversations spanning a mix of genres including music, art, environment, philosophy, science, politics, human rights and of course memoir and fiction.

To ensure we can continue to support and celebrate writers, readers and storytellers please make a donation today. As a not-for-profit organisation run with a small team of staff and volunteers, contributions of any size go a long way in enriching the creative culture of our community.

We are very proud of a hugely successful 21st year with more than 130 writers, thinkers and commentators from across Australia and around the world converging on the beautiful Festival grounds at Elements of Byron to discuss, debate, enlighten and soak up the glorious Byron sunshine.
