A wave of literature is forecast to wash over the Gold Coast during the 23rd Somerset Celebration of Literature – The writers’ festival for the Gold Coast.

The three-day festival unites over 30 acclaimed Australian authors as they barrel their way through more than 5000 festival-goers.

Wednesday evening sees a night of fun and festivities where you can meet your favourite author, enjoy the Dippin’ Dots and Dutch Poffertjes, and marvel at the spectacular fireworks display.

Join local story teller and surf writer, Tim Baker, as he relays his year-long travels around Australia with his family at the Literary Luncheon.

Renowned spoken word poet and 2014 favourite Luka Lesson, reminds us to “eat two leaves of basil every day”, at our Literary Long Table on Friday.

Also featuring festival favourites Tristan Bancks, Felice Arena, Jaqueline Harvey and Alice Pung.

Creative partner of Bleach* Festival since 2011
