New festival site and dates announced for Byron Writers Festival 2022!

The Festival team and I are thrilled to announce Byron Writers Festival 2022, set to take place this August 26 — 28 at a new site, the beautiful North Byron Parklands.

It is an incredible gift to create an experience for people who love books to come together in celebration of our mutual love of words and ideas. Now more than ever, the joy of meeting in person at a literary festival, to listen, reflect, laugh and be uplifted, feels so important. So it is with great excitement that I am working with the Byron Writers Festival team to bring back everything you have loved about this wonderful event.

You can 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. In August we will gather in a new stunning location on Minjungbal land to immerse ourselves in ideas and imagine the future we want to share.

I can’t wait to see you there.

Zoë Pollock
Artistic Director
