Tasmanian Poetry Festival

The Tasmanian Poetry Festival 2023 celebrates all things poetry with guests and performers from across Tasmania and Australia.

From Friday, 6 October to Sunday, 8 October, the festival takes over the Earl Arts Centre and the Launceston Library.

Representing a wide range of poetic styles, including specialists in the written word and prize-winning performance, our poets include interstate performers Tug Dumbly, David Hallett, Myron Lysenko, Rebecca Rushbrook, Brendan Ryan and Kimberly K. Williams, and Tasmanians Pamela Leach and Tim Thorne prize winner Esther Ottaway, with UK-born and internationally recognised Helga Jermy from Ulverstone.

A special treat will be Sunday's performance by the highly regarded Ross Donlon with international jazz guitarist Steve Brien and the iconic Launceston Poetry Cup on Saturday night.
