Words Out West: Western Downs Readers & Writers Fest takes a novel approach to storytelling, with a host of events for all ages and interests.

Join us at Books & Bubbles: where you’ll sip on champagne, mingle with presenters, and hear incredible stories.

Words Out West Festival weekend will be from Friday 7 March to Sunday 16 March, 2025 program is yet to be finalised – Watch this space.

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 Schooners & Stories at one of our local pubs.

And with our free Author Tour and School Days across the region, there’s something on offer for all word-lovers: big and small.
