Byron Writers Festival will again be held at Elements of Byron.

Organisers of the Byron Writers Festival say that in the wake of recent weather events at the North Byron Parklands, the Byron Writers Festival 2022 will relocate to Elements of Byron.

Byron Writers Festival Artistic Director Zoe Pollock said that after consultation with North Byron Parklands, it was agreed that 2022 will move to Elements.’They have generously offered to host the festival on the grounds adjacent to the resort for another year.

Ms Pollock said she is grateful that moving the festival, which will be held from August 26 to 28, was expedited quickly by Elements and the Byron Shire Council.

‘We are looking forward to welcoming our guests and patrons back to the 2022 Byron Writers Festival after a two-year hiatus to celebrate the power of stories to connect us.’

The festival will take place in five marquees on the grounds adjacent to Elements of Byron. The site change does not affect the festival program or the validity of tickets already purchased.
