Events Scribblers Festival 4 – 8 May 2022

Boffins is excited to again be the official bookseller for Scribblers Festival an annual festival of literature and arts for young people, promoting the magic of storytelling and the power of books and creativity as tools to help kids and teens better understand the world they live in.

The 2022 School Program features an exciting mix of talented Australian authors and illustrators, including blockbuster writers Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (Illuminae Files), Katrina Nannestad (We Are Wolves) and Oliver Phommavanh (Thai-riffic!), plus lots of talented locals like James Foley (Stellarphant), Deb Fitzpatrick (The Spectacular Spencer Gray) and Peter Cheong (Pow Pow Pig) to help round out the amazing list of presenters just waiting to share their tips, tricks and insights.

To make the most of your festival experience and continue the learning at home (and avoid waiting in lines), why not pre-purchase the brilliant books by the authors and illustrators appearing – most of whom will be available to sign their books on the day! All pre-purchased books receive an amazing 10% discount using the code SF22 and can be posted directly to you. Easy!

And, if you’d like to collect your books from the festival, simply state FESTIVAL COLLECTION in the 'Additional instructions or comments' box on the checkout page.

Scribblers Festival's Family Program takes place at Subiaco Arts Centre from 7 - 8 May 2022, with plenty of sessions, workshops and activities for young people to take part in across the weekend.
