Queensland Writers Centre‘s annual Books From Our Backyard is a catalogue of books written by Queensland writers, to connect Australian and international readers with the wealth of tales and wisdom that comes out of our state.

The unique voices arising from the many and varied regions of Queensland – from the cape to the border, from the coast to the bush – make a vital contribution to Queensland cultural activity, and to Australian literature.”

Julie Barnett, Chair, Queensland Writers Centre

Queensland Writers Centre distributes Books From Our Backyard to readers via libraries, schools and booksellers throughout Queensland and beyond.
