Byron Writers Festival is a non-profit member organisation presenting workshops and events year-round, including the annual Festival.
The Northern Rivers Writers’ Centre was incorporated in 1995, the home of the much-loved Byron Bay Writers Festival, first held in 1997. In 2016, the Centre and the Festival were amalgamated under one banner and renamed Byron Writers Festival. The Byron Writers Festival is staffed by a small dedicated team led by a volunteer Committee. The organisation is not-for-profit and receives its core funding from Create NSW.
Although it is in NSW, Byron Bay is just 2 hours south of Brisbane and 40 minutes from the Gold Coast Airport.
