Somerset Celebration of Literature Festival

Posted by Sas Lyon

QT loves all things that inject culture into our day, so the Somerset Celebration of Literature Festival offers a wonderful opportunity to immerse ourselves in the written word for a weekend!

The Somerset Celebration of Literature Festival is the writers’ festival for the Gold Coast and noted as Australia’s premier youth literature festival. The Festival hosts over 50 schools from south east Queensland and northern New South Wales. In 2014, over 200 regional and indigenous children attended through the generosity of the Somerset Literary Fund. In total over 8,000 students attended over a three day period.

They welcome over 30 Australian and international authors and illustrators, who take part in author sessions and workshops. The Bookshop is open for book purchases and author signings. For the adults, there are panel sessions, workshops and much more! The Prologue Party (a fair style event for the whole family), Literary Lunch and Literary Long Table with Kári Gíslason as guest speaker, are all features in 2015. Winners of the National Novella and Poetry Prize competitions are announced during the evening.
