Golden Feather

The Golden Feather Hunt Back By Popular Demand

We're bringing the magic of The Golden Feather Hunt back this year. Libraries the length and breadth of Western Australia have hidden feather shaped bookmarks in books on the shelves of their YA lit and children's sections. Up for grabs are hundreds of paper feathers, twenty Silver Feathers and only five Golden Feathers.

Whoever finds a rare and special Golden Feather gets a fabulous prize, which includes a VIP pass to the 2019 Scribblers Festival. Silver Feather finders win literary goodies too. So get sleuthing in your local library!

If you find a feather why not pop a photo of your discovery on social media for the chance to WIN a spot prize.

We'll be sharing hints of feather locations on our Facebook and Instagram  #goldenfeatherhunt

First tell your librarian that you have found a Gold or Silver Feather.
