Announcing our 2022 dates!

We are pleased to announce our 2022 festival dates for June 3 – 5 (culminating with an event on June 6).

As with our sold-out inaugural event, we will be hosting a memorable array of intimate conversations and panels, ranging over inspirational true stories, untold histories and human truths, and fictional narratives with something to say about contemporary culture. 

We will be hosting the main program at the Ocean Beach Surf Lifesaving Club, as well as responding to demand by adding an additional stream at the nearby Umina Beach Surf Lifesaving Club. Both these venues have a 180 degree coastline view, prompting one speaker to proclaim during the 2021 event: “This is the most beautiful literary festival in the world!” 

In addition to this main program, we will host standalone special events across various venues including an opening launch, adult workshops, a family fun day, a cinema screening and a literary cruise, and more. 

We are so excited to be presenting Words on the Waves Writers Festival again, not only to the Central Coast community, but also to its visitors from Sydney, NSW and beyond. We hope you can join us! 

Watch this space, and in the meantime if you haven’t already sign up to our enewsletter so you can ensure the good news flows to you.
