Cairns Tropical Writers Festival 2023

Festivals and Celebrations

24 Feb 2023 to 26 Feb 2023 Biennial Event

Rising like a Phoenix after two cancelled events due to COVID-19, the Cairns Tropical Writers Festival is back in 2023!
It will bring a vibrant, engaging and creatively stimulating three-day cultural event, complemented by topically relevant and other not to be missed events leading to the main festival event. Writers, readers and storytellers from Far North Queensland, interstate and overseas will come together. The theme is Change. To network, learn, explore, share experiences and debate about, and across, a wide range of writing genres, forms and content.

Their exciting program, which will include workshops, catered functions, book launches, debates, performances, and several guest speakers, will showcase the region’s distinct voices and engage a wide audience across age, culture, nationality, and socio-economic groups.

In bringing the community together to celebrate storytelling through writing, reading and viewing, the Cairns Tropical Writers Festival will also provide opportunities for local writers and readers to learn, share skills and network with industry professionals from beyond the region.
