I’m SO EXCITED about this year’s Brisbane Writers Festival at State Library of Queensland 10 – 14 May. Artistic Director Jackie Ryan has curated a brilliant program featuring international authors and thinkers (The Booker Prizes winner amongst others), a host of Australian icons, and with a strong focus on local Brisbane and Queensland writers. First Nations stories scaffold the entire festival, and diversity of culture, identity and thought are highlighted. Whether you are 2 or 102, there is a story for you. The hum of excitement in the air at the 2023 launch was palpable. Everyone feels that this festival is going to be truly special.

Congrats to all the hardworking, behind-the-scenes team. Get your tickets now for your favourite sessions.

I’m honoured to be moderating four panels with some very cool and talented authors. Check out my events page for details.
