Margaret River Readers Writers Festival

The Margaret River Readers & Writers Festival is the flagship annual literature event of Arts Margaret River. It is the biggest regional literary event in Western Australia and aims to foster a love of literature and the arts within the community.

Each year, the festival brings an array of thought-provoking writers to the region including novelists, journalists, academics and established and emerging storytellers from WA, interstate and overseas.

The Margaret River Readers & Writers Festival celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2018. What began as a modest local project in 2009 has grown to be Western Australia’s largest regional literary festival with a significant youth component that tours schools in the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River and the City of Busselton.

Young Readers & Writers Program

Our Young Readers & Writers Program tours primary and secondary schools bringing our children’s authors into schools to spark creativity, celebrate storytelling and foster a love of reading and writing.

The program runs for 2 weeks around the main festival in the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River and the City of Busselton. The program is proudly supported by the Rotary Club of Margaret River, Doral Mineral Sands, Margaret River & Cowaramup & Lions Clubs, Shire of Augusta-Margaret River and City of Busselton

Arts Margaret River Incorporated is the owner and organiser of the Margaret River Readers & Writer Festival. The team includes Michelle Wright (General Manager), Stephanie Kreutzer (Marketing),  Kaye Campbell (Finance/Administration) all supporting Sian Baker (Readers & Writers Festival Creative & Festival Director).

In addition to the Arts Margaret River team, we have an incredible and dedicated number of volunteers also assist with many tasks. We could not deliver the festival without them.
