Golden Feather

THE GOLDEN FEATHER HUNT

We've hidden hundreds of feathers in library books around Western Australia. Head to the children's and YA section of your library and keep an eye out for special feather bookmarks hidden inside.

Whoever finds a rare and special Golden Feather wins a fabulous prize, including a VIP pass to the 2019 Scribblers Festival and an iPad. Silver Feather finders will also win some literary prizes, and if you find a white feather make sure you decorate it and share it on social media for the chance to win a spot prize.
