You’re here because you love words.
Whether you’re a reader, a writer or a thinker; starting out or well along in the journey; this place is for you. The Tamar Valley Writers Festival was sculpted and honed to inspire and propel you forwards in your adventures with the written and spoken word. What better place to do it than immersed in the fertile riverlands of the Tamar with her vineyards, storied townships and warm characters.
Renowned Australian authors, bloggers, playwrights, song writers and poets will bring new insights in our upcoming program. Imagine exploring the weight of storytelling through many diverse prisms.
In light of the challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Festival comes to you reimagined to engage and entertain the Tasmanian community through a continuous thread of fresh and exciting events and opportunities, culminating in a fully-fledged three-day festival in September 2022. Between now and then, we invite you to join as we embrace, explore and celebrate our wonderful world through words — fact and fiction.
