The award-winning Words Out West was once again a resounding success in March 2023 for readers, writers, and word-lovers alike, right here on the Western Downs. Words Out West: Western Downs Readers & Writers Fest takes a novel approach to storytelling, with a host of events for all ages and interests. The main Festival Day offers local and national storytelling talent featuring a number of well known Australian celebrities. Immerse yourself in our day-long Writers Retreat, with a creative writing masterclass for the adults — and for the first time — a tailored short story workshop for high-schoolers. For a taste of how Words Out West does things differently, order at the bar and pull up a seat at one of the Schooners and Stories sessions offered around the region. With free Author Tour and School Days across the region, there's something on offer for all word-lovers: big and small. Please note the 2024 Program has not as yet been established however keep your eyes out for dates and information in the future. Words out West is an initiative of Western Downs Libraries and Western Downs Regional Council. Where will your story take you at Words Out West?
