About the Festival

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The Logan Writers Festival is an annual two day festival celebrating the literary arts and writers in Logan. During the festival we bring readers and writers together to strengthen the community and share our love of the creative word. Readers are given a chance to find their new favourite Logan authors, while also seeing what goes on behind the scenes when it comes to writing their beloved stories. Writers are able to network, grow their readership and learn about the up and coming industry trends, while also being given a chance to sell their novels.

Through the assistance of our volunteer team we aim to give the readers and writers in Logan an enchanting experience that makes them excited for the next chapter.

HISTORY

This is the very first exciting Logan Writers Festival held by the Chamber of Commerce, having been inspired Karen Tyrrell's Logan Writers Week and all of the surrounding festivals. The Chamber of Commerce and the Logan Writers Festival director, Rhiannon, are passionate about elevating the capabilities, creative confidence and community appreciation for the various literary professionals in Logan. It is our belief that with consistency and community support, the Logan writers will thrive. The Logan City Council, local schools and Logan Libraries are some of the most enthusiastic supporters for the writing community and their creative pursuits.

AT THE FESTIVAL

During the festival you'll see writers stalls filled with all of their books. You'll get the chance to talk with other readers and writers about your favourite books and find new ones to delve into.

Our two marquees are set up to to give you the talks you've been excited about. One marquee for the story behind your favourite stories, and the other showing you how authors operate in their craft and business.

Two casual circles will be ready for you to listen to poetry recitals and first chapter readings, sharing them with a safe group and enthralling onlookers. You can bring your own ready to share your own writing.

Enjoy a bite to eat, some great music and a flip through the first chapter of your new book while you make new book loving friends.

MISSION

The Logan Writers Festival always aims to grow the creative confidence, capabilities and community appreciation for the literary professionals in Logan. It is our position that while pursuing your calling as a writer you are operating your own business and it is our goal to help give you the skills to live the life you dream of.
