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 art form in a number of ways. Focused around the theme of deep listening, attendees can expect sessions on everything from signing rhymes, poetry in first languages, being playful with poems and exploring life outside of a city — plus slam competitions, parties, poetry readings, a cabaret and the returning QPF Poetry Zine Fair as well.

The 2019 Queensland Poetry Festival takes place from Thursday, August 22 to Sunday, August 25 at a number of Brisbane venues, including the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts and Bloodhound Bar.
