The 2019 Scribblers Festival Schools Program is out now!Download the program
8-10 May 2019
The Scribblers Festival 2019 Schools Program is now available and open for bookings – offering a three day program for students and teachers to immerse themselves in words and pictures. Together we will explore the lines between truth and fiction, consider the poetry found within maths, and contemplate the power of words to change the world.
And don’t worry we haven’t forgotten about families! Our 2019 Family Program will be held on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 May, continuing the magic from the Schools Program, the family weekend will bring together the young and old to explore and create. The full Family Program will be released in February but make sure you sign-up to our mailing list
For the many students who attended our inaugural Festival, Scribblers was a portal to worlds of words and imagination, books and podcasts.
We hope you will be able to join us for the Scribblers Festival journey in 2019.
All good stories start somewhere….
"Absolutely sensationally amazing"
"I would like to figure out how dreams are created…"
“I like the poem where you could find a lion under your toast. Maybe I could find a shark fin in my glass of milk!”
"It made me feel like I want to draw and write more."
"Safe and relaxed, the Scribblers Festival was the best!"
This feedback came from youngsters who attended the inaugural Scribblers Festival of literature and arts for young people. Children who opened up new worlds: of words and writing and books and podcasts and pictures. Worlds of ambition, imagination, self-belief and storytelling. Children who met leading authors and poets and illustrators and came away saying… I want to do that too.
We launched our inaugural Scribblers Festival in May 2018 to nearly 10,000 wide-eyed kids, parents, and teachers. Learn more about who we are, why we're here, and how we celebrate the magic of storytelling.
