The closing event of the Literary Youth Festival (LYF), a night of merriment, fiction, and magic; of the real truth of things. And the real truth of things involves dressing up fancy and having a lovely time with your creative peers.

Yes, this is a festival of literature, but really it’s about our friendship. Becoming aware of the complexities of the people you love feels a lot like laughing while dancing. And laughing while dancing is what we will do when we are all lit up.



WHEN: Thursday 13 April, 7.30 – 11.00pm
WHERE: Centre for Stories



The Literary Youth Festival (LYF) is the first youth-led festival of literature in Western Australia, run by young people in the Literary Youth Festival Planning Subcommittee of National Youth Week. 

LYF seeks to raise the voices of young poets, bloggers, playwrights, graphic novelists, novelists and performers. LYF is about creating more opportunities for young aspiring writers nourishing of a literary movement in WA.

This initiative, like many literary ventures in WA, would not be possible without the tireless work of people within the literary community – along with organisations such as WritingWAThe Centre for Stories and Spoken Word Perth – all of whom are constantly making magic happen in the sometimes literal but always literary sense.
