In 2016 Voices on the Coast will celebrate 21 years. The annual youth literature festival is proudly presented by Immanuel Lutheran College and the University of the Sunshine Coast. Student days are hosted on the University's Sippy Downs campus.

The festival aims to inspire young people to enjoy the world of reading, writing, drawing and performing. The two-day event attracts leading Australian authors, illustrators and poets who present talks and workshops to students and adults.

Voices on the Coast offers a unique cultural experience to regional youth. It has become a much-anticipated event for students in Years 5–12 (aged 10–18 years) across the Sunshine Coast and adjacent inland areas. Some students travel over 200km to attend!

In 2015, more than 9,000 tickets were sold across the two days—66 schools attended, bringing more than 4,500 students to enrich their cultural experience.

Mark the dates—we hope to see you there in 2016.
