Frankston Writers & Poets Society Incorporated

The Mornington Peninsula Writers Festival is a community-funded event initiated by members of the Frankston Writers & Poets Society, Inc. The group is a not-for-profit organisation that provides a forum for writers of all genres and experience levels to meet with likeminded artists to hone their craft.

Eager to celebrate their love of stories and the written word with the broader community, the group initiated the plans for a local writers' festival in 2017. The inaugural festival was held in Mornington on 10 March 2018.

Want to help shape the future of the festival?

If you are interested in contributing your skills and knowledge to future festival events, the Frankston Writers & Poets Society would love to hear from you. Get in touch or come along to our regular fortnightly meetings which occur every second Saturday at the Frankston Library in the Long Room.
