EnQueer | Sydney Queer Writers’ Festival aims to bring together people of all genders, sexualities, ethnicities, disabilities, faiths, cultures, and backgrounds at a literary forum which appreciates and acknowledges the power of diversity. Stories and experiences of people with diverse backgrounds truly reflect modern Australian values and the festival seeks to bring them to the fore.


EnQueer’s hugely successful inaugural festival in November 2021 consisted of 17 programs, featuring 65 queer writers and poets, with over 1,300 event attendees. It included addresses from Benjamin Law, Courtney Act, Alex Greenwich MP, and prominent intersectional queer writers from across Australia and New Zealand.

EnQueer's key objectives are:

  • To be the cultural hub for queer writers and queer writing in Australia

  • To provide a platform for queer writers to promote their work

  • To provide a space for queer writers to discuss and debate prevalent themes in queer writing 

  • To celebrate and promote queer Australian writing in NSW and beyond

  • To contribute to making Sydney and NSW a queer cultural hub in Australia
