Now in its eleventh year, the 2022 Kids & YA Festival will be bigger and brighter than ever before.

Directed by award-winning, internationally published children’s author Belinda Murrell, this year’s Festival will take place on Saturday 25 June and showcases some of Australia’s best-known and dearly loved authors, illustrators, publishers, media personnel and industry professionals, many of whom have achieved international success.

The 2022 Kids & YA Festival will examine emerging trends, engage with celebrated authors, and offer informative and inspiring sessions on writing for children.

The Kids and YA Festival will be held at Writing NSW in Callan Park, Lilyfield, on Saturday 25 June 2022.

The Festival program will be released in May 2022.

To ensure the Festival will cover the emerging trends and diversity of voices in the field, Belinda is calling for submissions from people involved in the writing community.

Submissions may come from authors, illustrators, e-book and traditional trade publishers, independent publishers, agents and other interested parties. Involvement may take the form of panel speakers, chair responsibilities, mentoring or manuscript feedback sessions.

Please include details of your publication experience, any upcoming releases around the time of the festival, and suggested panel topics or specific areas of expertise.
