Scribblers Festival is an annual festival of literature and arts for young people, brought to life by cultural non-profit FORM
with the support of our amazing Partners
across Western Australia. With programming just for Schools,
a free weekend for the whole Family
, and mini-events throughout the year, Scribblers Festival invites young people and the young at heart to celebrate the magic of storytelling
The Festival brings together authors and illustrators from Perth, across Australia, and around the world to empower and engage young readers through interactive sessions and workshops. In the lead up to the Festival, over 15,000 feather-shaped bookmarks are scattered throughout public libraries across Western Australia, with five rare Golden Feathers waiting to be found by lucky young readers as part of the annual Golden Feather Hunt
We harness the creativity of young adults by inviting them to help us curate the perfect YA experience at Scribblers as part of The YA Collective
. Young writers are also invited to put their ideas on to paper for a chance to win a Golden Pen Writing Award.
And those that prefer using their voice are invited to grill our cast of creatives from our very own Conversation Caravan,
creating podcasts that are broadcast around the world. Sound like fun? Click the links above to find out how you and your family can celebrate the magic of storytelling with us!
