11 – 13 August 2023
Mark your calendar for Byron Writers Festival 2023, set to take place this August 11 — 13 at our new site, the beautiful Bangalow Showgrounds.
Australia’s favourite regional literary festival
For three days in August, more than 80 writers and thinkers will come together in Byron to ponder the power of stories and the written word in shaping who we are. Now in its 27th year, Byron Writers Festival has become famous for its relaxed and friendly vibe, open-air location and compelling conversations spanning a mix of genres including environment, first nations, politics, philosophy, music, art, social issues and of course memoir and fiction.
Let’s celebrate the power of words
Now more than ever, the joy of gathering together to listen, reflect, laugh and be uplifted, feels so important. Expect to hear from your favourite authors, discover new talented writers and listen to conversations with some of our greatest thinkers on the topics that matter now.
We can’t wait to welcome you to this wonderful event!
