Be part of the Queensland Poetry Festival!


QPF is Australia’s foremost festival for the poetic arts. We are currently seeking expressions of interest (EOIs) from emerging and established poets working in any form or genre, writers, performers, musicians, cross-disciplinary artists, academics and more, to feature in the 2018 Festival Program.

Check out last year’s program for the kind of events we usually program, but also feel free to suggest something entirely out-of-the-box or experimental.

To submit your expression of interest:

Please complete this online form. Be sure to read the form thoroughly to ensure you are responding to the thematic statement. The deadline for expressions of interest is Friday 23 March. Late submissions will not be accepted.

Then what happens?

Our panel of program advisors, in consultation with the artistic director, will read and review all expressions of interest. You will be notified of the outcome of your EOI in late April. Unfortunately, due to the large volume of EOIs we receive, QPF is unable to provide feedback on unsuccessful EOIs.

If your EOI is successful, a member of the QPF team will contact you to discuss your involvement in more detail.

We are so excited to hear from you! If you have any questions, or experience any difficulties completing the form, please contact us on (07) 3842 9990 or email
