Beechworth Victoria

Winterwords is five days of talking, listening, watching, and doing which aims to foster the celebration of words.

Attend a panel discussion or an author talk, participate in a workshop, listen to, or tell a story, listen to a band, see an art exhibition, hear or share some poetry, play some word games, chat in the pub by the open fire, it’s so much more than a writers’ festival.

Events take place in many of the wonderful heritage and civic buildings such as the Beechworth Town Hall, the Beechworth Library, the Old Railway Station, Beechworth Servicemen's Memorial Hall, and lovely old pubs such as Tanswell's Commercial Hotel.

Activities such as the art exhibition and play readings are run in collaboration with other community organisations such as the Mayday Hills Arts Society, Beechworth U3A, and The Beechworth Theatre Company. With so much to do over five days in winter, Winterwords is truly a unique event.
