Big Sky Readers & Writers Festival

  • 37 Marine Terrace Geraldton, WA, 6530 Australia (map)

Literature lovers – the Big Sky Readers & Writers festival is back in Geraldton from 20 to 22 May.

Comprising more than 22 events over three days, fans of storytelling will be enthralled by discussions, debates, masterclasses and presentations on a range of styles and genres. With an eclectic mix of Australian talent involved in the Festival, headlined by much-loved Aussie actor and now author Steve Bisley, there will be something (and someone) for everyone.

The Big Sky Readers & Writers Festival has been held for more than a decade and this year highlights include Steve Bisley’s Festival opening address, Poetry in the Pub at the charming Bootenal Family Tavern; A Literary Lunch at Bentwood Olive Grove; and a raft of free sessions where guests can get up close and personal with writers and illustrators throughout the weekend.

The Festival is being held in Geraldton, with the main venues being Geraldton Universities Centre and Geraldton Regional Library. Special sessions are being held at WA Museum Geraldton, Salt Dish Café, Bootenal Family Tavern, and Bentwood Olive Grove.

Most of the events are free to attend. Ticketed events cost from $42 to $100 and are available to purchase from the Geraldton Regional Library. Phone (08) 9956 6659 or email to reserve tickets.
