2023 Brisbane Writers Festival
DATE: 10 May – 14 May 2023, 5 Days
VENUE: Queensland State Library
2023 Brisbane Writers Festival is coming in May! For the second year, BWF is presenting its Country of Focus program, an initiative highlighting the dynamic literature of the Indo-Pacific region. The festival has the pleasure of hosting extraordinary South Korean talents, beginning with the incredible children’s book authors/illustrators Gihun Lee and JiHyeon Lee, then expanding to include some of the most exciting and subversive voices in South Korean literature: Bae Suah, Choi Eunyoung, Lee Young-ju, Krys Lee, and literary luminary Bora Chung. Their astonishing work probes the psychological disquiet of modernity through radical formal innovation and devastating intimacy.
