The inaugural 2016 Sunshine Coast International Readers Writers Festival plays host to a smorgasbord of literary surprises at every turn, nook and cranny with both internationally and nationally renowned writers, poets, songwriters, photographers and journalists landing on the sandy shores of Coolum.
With the underlying themes of the regions rich Aboriginal heritage, surfing culture, and celebrated literary and musical talent, the festival becomes a colourful weave of literary breakfasts, dreamtime story-telling and engaging panel discussions.
Enjoy a mouth full of slam poets, singer-song writers such as Barry Charles and Andrea Kirwin and comedy with the likes of Sean Choolburra.
Pick up a writing technique or a pinch of inspiration here or there with an abundance of workshops and talks available alongside networking with your choice of independent publishers.
The festival is the perfect space to journey into cultural connections and creative conversations. For tickets and more information please visit the website.
