Saturday 16 June 2018 to Sunday 17 June 2018

The Williamstown Literary Festival, the biggest literary event in Melbourne's west, celebrates its 15th year on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 June.

This year's event will celebrate the writers and performers who’ve grown along with the WLF and present new and upcoming authors, exploring the leap it takes to push outside the comfort zone as a writer.

Festival theme: From little things...

The festival has a line-up of 80 local and interstate writers and performers who will explore the theme ‘From little things…’.

Program Director Loraine Callow expects this year’s program will address the theme with the humour, creativity and adventurous nature that Williamstown is known for.
