Words in Winter

Event Date: 23 August 2024 to 25 August 2024 11:59 PM

Here comes [Words in] Winter!
A mix of LGBTQIA+, First Nations, local, and visiting writers will explore the theme ‘connection of the heart’ when Words in Winter Festival returns this 23-25 August! Over 50 artists are coming to Daylesford and Hepburn Springs, 90 minutes from Melbourne/Naarm, on Dja Dja Wurrung Country.
Our program will be twice as big as last year! We have over 30 events planned, including poetry readings, children's events, workshops, and author’s talks. We are excited to share more of them with you next week.
If you're from out of town - book yourself some cosy accommodation to place a light at the end of the tunnel that is winter!
