Books From Our Backyard

Books From Our Backyard registrations are now closed.


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.

“I love to read Queensland stories. Whether they are fiction or non-fiction, based in the tropical state that we know or some fantastical world in a far-off universe, there is a huge variety of work that comes out of our own backyard.”

Kevin Gillespie, Chair, Queensland Writers Centre

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