Storytellers’ Festival Program and Workshops

Sunshine Coast Libraries is hosting the coast's biggest combined book launch at Beerwah on Tuesday 30 August. The Sunshine Coast is home to an abundance of exceptional literary talent. Libraries are bringing together writers, readers and creatives to share our love of books and support our local authors.

The Storytellers' Festival 2022 offers the opportunity to meet and mingle with successful local authors, explore their works and listen to their stories, you may even discover your new favourite book! Emerging authors will be inspired to follow their writing and publishing journey as they take part in a series of creative writing, publishing and illustration workshops. Do not miss this chance to connect and immerse yourself in our passionate writing community.

This event is proudly supported by Horizon Festival.
