Sydney Writers' Festival - Live & Local
Gold Coast Libraries is excited to be part of the Sydney Writers' Festival - Live & Local project in 2021! One of Australia's best-loved forums for literature, ideas and storytelling, Sydney Writers' Festival will be streaming its headline events from Carriageworks in Sydney direct to select libraries on Friday 30 April, Saturday 1 May and Sunday 2 May.
Prepare to be engaged by conversations, debates and discussions, as the Festival brings some of the world's finest authors and esteemed thinkers to Gold Coast Libraries in real time via digital live-streaming project, Live & Local. As well as hearing new ideas from great thinkers, audiences will have the opportunity to participate in Q&A sessions at each event, sending questions direct to the Sydney stage.

Gold Coast Libraries and Queensland Writers Centre have teamed up to offer Gold Coast writers a new supportive space to focus on your writing, free of distractions, every week. We're following the lead of the best writers and employing the Pomodoro technique of time management. With a facilitator on hand throughout the day, it's the perfect opportunity to turn your brilliant ideas into great pieces of writing. Join us at Helensvale Library every Friday from 10.30am to 4.30pm. Find out more.
