In the lead up to the festival each year, artists are asked to respond to the festival theme with artwork as part of our Visual Stories competition and exhibition. Artworks span a variety of mediums are displayed at the festival hub in the weeks prior to the Margaret River Readers & Writers Festival and also on the festival weekend.
The competition and exhibition is open to artists residing in Western Australia and has a prize pool comprising first, second, third and People’s Choice. It’s a fabulous chance for local artists to showcase their work while some of Australia’s top literary talents visit the Margaret River region.
While the 2020 Visual Stories exhibition did not proceed due to Covid-19 we look forward to welcoming local artists to exhibit as part of the 2021 Margaret River Readers & Writers Festival.
