3 - 7 May 2017

Noted Writers Festival is an independent celebration of words and writing for anyone and everyone who loves to write. One of the newest additions to Canberra’s cultural calendar – Noted is a writers festival with a twist that is not to be missed.


About Noted

In 2015, Noted writers’ festival staged Canberra’s first writers’ festival in five years, and its first ever writers’ festival with an explicit commitment to emerging and experimental writing from diverse backgrounds. Now, in our third year, Noted is ready—and thrilled—to return. Noted is a community for people who love to write. Featuring authors, poets, journalists, publishers, editors, dancers, zinemakers, multidisciplinary artists and more, Noted will be better in ways even we don’t yet understand. 

In 2017, Noted will stage free panels, workshops, lectures, readings, literary bar crawls, children’s events, an independent publishing fair and more in city cafés, galleries, pubs and arts centres. 

Noted's website is archived by the National Library of Australia on Pandora, you can see past sites here
