Welcome to the 14th Annual Kimberley Writers Festival!


Kimberley Writers Festival 2019

Here it seems there is no wall between the writers and the audience. This kind of intimacy and love I think is hard to beat by other writers festivals.
Agustinus Wibowo, acclaimed Indonesian writer and guest of the 2015 Kimberley Writers Festival

Be inspired, entertained and connected at the Kimberley Writers Festival in Kununurra from 6 to 8 September 2019.

This is a one-of-a-kind writer’s festival held in one of Australia’s most stunning, dramatic and remote locations, providing an opportunity to meet authors and special guests in an informal environment. It’s a completely different experience to big city writer’s festivals.

Now in its 14th year, the 2019 program will include workshops, readings, a literary breakfast, and more. The annual Sunday Ord River Cruise champagne brunch and storytelling returns, and is usually a sell-out.

Guests already confirmed for this year’s Kimberley Writers Festival include award-winning children’s writer and poet Meg McKinlay; Former Canberra journalist and foreign correspondent-turned crime novelist Chris Hammer; New Zealand-born and raised young readers author Raewyn Caisley who has a special connection with Kimberley country; novelist and playwright Steve Hawke; photographer and visual storyteller Chris Gurney; and award-winning writer and Sydney-based author and translator Tiffany Tsao.
