Founded by Anna Solding of MidnightSun Publishing and Caroline Wood of Margaret River Press, the Festival connects audiences with short story writers, storytellers, publishers, and editors of literary magazines. It brings together readers and local, Australian and international short story writers.

As the first national event to focus exclusively on the short story form, the Australian Short Story Festival offers a unique contribution to the nation’s literary culture, as well as a timely response to the current resurgence of this aesthetically exacting narrative form.

For the first time, the Australian Short Story Festival will be held in Melbourne.

A full program can be downloaded from the Festival’s webiste.

Festival tickets, from individual workshops to festival passes, can be booked via eventbrite.
