Word nerds, it's your time of year. Brisbane Writers Festival is just around the corner; however that's not the only city-wide celebration of literature and language of late, with Queensland Poetry Festival also returning for another stint.

As always, this tribute to waxing lyrical has compiled a diverse program that showcases the artform in a number of ways. Focused around the theme of healing, attendees can expect sessions on everything from poetry and wellbeing, using the medium to imagine a better world, processing feelings into prose in today's post-#MeToo climate and grappling with loss — plus slam competitions, poetry readings, a bookstore slinging must-read texts and the the returning QPF Poetry Zine Fair as well.

The 2018 Queensland Poetry Festival takes place from August 23 to 26 at a number of Brisbane venues, including the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, Bloodhound Bar, Brisbane Square Library, the Institute of Modern Art and the University of Queensland Art Museum.
