In March 2014, the Tamar Valley mining town of Beaconsfield hosted the inaugural Beaconsfield Festival of Golden Words; a unique community and cultural experience.

The event was so well revered it has since become one of regional Australia’s biggest writers festivals.

It’s happening again on 14-16 September, with our third iteration rebranded under the fresh banner of the Tamar Valley Writers Festival and, for the first time, located at Aspect Tamar Valley Resort, a central and welcoming location, and just a 20 minute picturesque drive from Launceston.

The Festival is a non-profit event supported by the Tasmanian Government through Events Tasmania and the West Tamar Council as well as many northern Tasmanian businesses and community groups.

This year’s Festival will bring together the finest of Australian literary thinking. Ticketed functions will include a gala opening night cocktail party, breakfasts, speaking events, masterclasses, and a BBQ.
