Somerset Storyfest’s Writers’ Festival has released their 2021 programme filled with events and workshops by stellar Australian authors to excite writers of all ages.

Wordsmiths and bookworms will have the opportunity to celebrate all things literature during the annual week-long event held on the Gold Coast on 13 to 20 March.

Following what was a traumatic year last year and having to cancel the event last minute, the team are thrilled to be able to deliver a 2021 Festival jam-packed with an array of immersive events to nurture emerging writers.

From Podcast Workshops to Writing Masterclasses,  Improvisation Sessions and Champagne Brunches, visitors to this year’s festival will revel in the range of literary experiences at their fingertips.

Students and adults will have the opportunity to meet with some of Australia’s most notable authors and visual storytellers including children’s author Andrew Daddo, adventurer and author Tim Cope, and young rising star of Queensland Poetry, Evelyn Araluen.

Renowned Australian author Melina Marchetta, known for her young adult novel Looking for Alibrandi, will also be meeting with aspiring novelists to share some juicy insights on living life as a writer.

Seamlessly blending both enjoyment and learning, Storyfest is a must for all ages this coming March.

A full programme of events can be found on Tickets go on sale 9am, Monday.
