THE 2nd annual Sunshine Coast International Readers and Writers Festival (SCIRWF) is being staged at Coolum in Queensland on August 12 and 13 this year (2017) after a successful launch last year which featured more than 100 international, national and regional writers, poets, publishers, songwriters, graphic artists and performers.

Three major venues will offer a feast of entertainment, panel sessions and workshops – the Coolum Civic Centre, a 200-person marquee and a 100-person marquee. These venues are all within the beautiful Jack Morgan Park precinct which will also host Artisan Market and Food stalls, information and free children's storytelling and craft marquees to add to the colour of the festival – plus roving poets, singers and comedians.

Our festival celebrates our rich creative talent, the region's indigenous heritage, our surfing culture and our passionate care for the environment. The festival brings together regional, Australian and international writers (including journalists, illustrators, publishers, photographers, poets and songwriters) on a world stage – creating a space for conversation and connection across cultural and geographic divides.

2017 also marks the launch of our festival's first-ever Sunshine Coast Poetry Slam being staged in partnership with Queensland Poetry Festival, Australian Poetry Slam and the national Word Travels. www.sunshinecoastreadersandwritersfestival.com
