Cairns Tropical Writers’ Festival …
Encouraging the love of literacy in our young people

Following on from the success of the Schools Program at the 2023 Festival, we are thrilled to announce that the 2024 SCHOOLS PROGRAM will be held on Thursday, 7 March and Friday, 8 March 2024.  Sessions will be held at Cairns City Library on Abbott Street.

ENCOURAGING A LOVE OF LITERACY:   A primary aim of the Cairns Tropical Writers’ Festival is to encourage a love of literacy in our young people and to have them engage with storytelling in all its forms. We have worked hard to curate a program for all ages, that covers so many areas – fiction, non-fiction, science, poetry, music, art and culture.   We hope you love it!

Engaging, Exciting Programming for All


We’re determined to ensure that CTWF is accessible to all, so accessibility isn’t a problem. If you need extra assistance to attend, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us using the contact details below.
