Bringing a world class writers’ festival to the Central Coast.
The inaugural Words on the Waves Writers Festival will be held on the scenic Central Coast, NSW, 12 – 13 June 2021. Join us for storytelling and energising conversations, book signings with your favourite authors, workshops, a kids’ program and more.
Especially designed for school groups
Presented in partnership with SCBWI, our Schools Program will take place on Friday June 11 in Umina Beach. It offers a wonderful opportunity for students to meet their favourite authors and illustrators, and get creative with hands-on writing and illustration workshops.
Support our first Festival
As a not-for-profit organisation run with a small team of volunteers, contributions of any size go a long way in enriching the creative culture of our community. The Committee includes local Peninsula residents passionate about bringing the arts to the Coast. We are seeking support from the community to help us create a wonderful and inclusive festival.
