Savannah: Townsville's Festival of Stories


Savannah: Festival of Stories is a destination event designed to inspire north Queensland residents to read, write, tell stories and connect with each other and their local library.

Running over the last weekend of May, residents are encouraged to get creative with story writing, zine creation, ochre painting, bush tucker tasting, 80’s roller skate disco, Q&A’s and a book session with a literary agent to pitch their own work.
