Queering Kyogle at the 2022 Kyogle Writers Festival


Kyogle Writers Festival

The northern NSW town of Kyogle will play host to the 2022 Kyogle Writers Festival this May with some fabulous queer authors.

Featuring more than 60 authors and poets, the festival will also include a wonderful queer focus.

Six queer authors will participate in unmissable events across the festival.

A small town festival with big ideas

Kyogle is just a small trip across the New South Whales border.

Boasting beautiful countryside and undeniable local charm it’s the perfect place to visit any time.

However, this May the town is putting on an event well worth the trip for anyone who likes the power of a good book.

Over 60 authors and poets will participate in the Kyogle Writers Festival, creating a feast of thoughts and ideas in this idyllic town.

Events will feature panel discussions with authors and poets and even film screenings of classics like The Princess Bride.

Queering Kyogle

While recognising a range of voices at the Kyogle Writers Festival, the festival will also have a queer focus.

Queer writers and poets, Michael Burge, Hayley Katzen, Gavin Yuan Gao, Ellen van Neerven, Melissa Lucashenko and Mykaela Saunders will participate in a range of events.

No Place Like Home? Is a panel discussion that will take place on the Friday of the festival.

The event will be chaired by Mykaela Saunders with insights provided by Michael Burge, Hayley Katzen, Gavin Yuan Gao on this thought-provoking discussion.

Together the panel will unpack notions of home, home-less-ness, place, belonging, identity, and community.

This All Come Back Now, is a First Nations conversation Mykaela Saunders and Ellen van Neerven later in the festival.

The pair will discuss this anthology of First Nations speculative fiction, which was edited by Saunders.

The Kyogle Writers Festival will host a variety of other events from the 13th – 15th of May 2022.
