Free & Ticketed

Get ready for five magical days of creativity, connection, learning – and family fun!

Scribblers Festival is a new literature and arts festival for young people brought to you by cultural non-profit FORM, with the Town of Claremont. It strives to engage, inspire, empower and transform young minds through reading, writing, art and creativity.

From 9-13 May 2018, Scribblers will open a whole new chapter of storytelling for Western Australia’s students, teachers, and children of all ages. We’ll bring authors and illustrators from around the world to gather in and around Claremont.

The free Families Program (12-13 May) includes hands-on activities and author talks, with some special ticketed creative workshops. Young scribblers will be able to find their inner poet, contribute to a collective cartography, and celebrate the special women in their lives at our Mother’s Day Market on Sunday 13 May.

There will also be three days (9-11 May) of schools programming, supporting the brilliant work of teachers with sessions on creativity, visual literacy and word play, and with resources that will help teachers in the lead up to the Festival and back in the classroom. Students will have the chance to meet leading writers and illustrators in children’s and young adult literature, and spend time exploring their own creative storytelling.

In the lead up to the Festival in May, don’t forget to keep an eye out for a Golden Feather in participating libraries across WA! Five Golden Feathers finders will win major prizes, while others have the chance to find a Silver Feather for a runner up prize, and one of many other feathers to decorate and post on social media – @scribblersfest and #goldenfeatherhunt – for a chance to win a spot prize.
