Voices on the Coast is a youth literature festival, located on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. The festival is made up of two student days held at the University of the Sunshine Coast plus a number of additional community events aimed at adults, emerging writers and readers held across the Sunshine Coast.
The student days are targeted towards students from Year 4 to Year 12 with over 150 talks and workshops over the two days. Authors and illustrators from across Australia are invited to talk and workshop with students. The student days are also open to adults and individuals. You do not have to be part of a school group to participate. Everybody is welcome!
The festival is presented by Immanuel Lutheran College and the University of the Sunshine Coast.
