May is one of the most beautiful months of the year in the Margaret River Region…almost to the point that it’s a local’s secret.
It falls into Djeran, one of the six seasons of the Wadandi people, the traditional owners. Djeran brings cooler weather, dewy mornings, native flowers in bloom and trees in fruit. May is a shoulder season where the pace is slower, the days are crisper, the autumn light is golden.
It’s against this backdrop that the Margaret River Readers & Writers Festival returns with a full programme from May 13 to 15, with a title of “No Word Limit” – which encapsulates the excitement of the festival’s reinstatement after a few years’ of Covid disruptions. The region is set to welcome authors, poets, journalists, artists, scientists, thinkers and more, exploding in a celebration of the literary word, across the Margaret River HEART venue, local libraries and iconic partner hospitality venues.
