Brisbane Writers' Festival

Posted By Holly On July 31, 2013

The Brisbane Writers' Festival is coming up with plenty of attractions for the whole family.Brisbane Writers' Festival

The Brisbane Writers' Festival is coming up and anyone who has ever been interested in the magic of words can head along to the event from September 4 to 8 this year.

As there are many writers on the agenda who specialise in kids' and young adult fiction, a trip to the city for the event would make for an ideal Queensland family holiday.

Book in your stay at Mantra on Queen or Mantra South Bank for a central location that will let you easily get to all of the venues hosting this wonderful event.

This is the festival that organises several events throughout the year, such as book launches and author talks, but when it comes to the annual festival, you can access several days of anything and everything literary all in one place.


"Every year, many aspiring and professional writers attend the festival. They come from all walks of life and between them they cover just about every topic you can imagine."

Some of the writers for the children's events have already been announced, and with sessions either running for free or just a few dollars, it will be easy to get the kids into exciting talks like 'My hamster is a genius' by Dave Lowe and 'Mary the Airy Fairy' from acclaimed children's author Margaret Clark.

If you're a writer yourself and are interested in becoming part of the festival, there is a chance for unsolicited submissions to be considered by the event organisers. It may be too late this year, but if you head to the city to check out the event this September, perhaps you'll be one of the ones added to the program next year!
