Cairns Tropical Writers Festival

Cairns Tropical Writers Festival

Tropical Writers Inc launched the inaugural Cairns Tropical Writers Festival in 2008 to meet the needs of the regional writing community of Far North Queensland, Australia, but the festival has grown so fast it is now a stand-alone and independent event.

Held as a biennial gathering in Cairns, the festival provides opportunities for the far flung regional community to meet, connect with and be motivated by published Australian authors and the wider writing and publishing industry.

The profile of the festival has grown to now be the pre-eminent writers festival in regional Queensland.

From 2020, the Cairns Tropical Writers Festival will embark on a 10 year plan to internationalise the festival, with a particular focus on the tropical zone as its niche.  Cairns, on the edge of the Asia-Pacific rim and with the busiest international airport in regional Australia, is uniquely placed to do this as Australia’s most globalised regional city.
