StoryFest Inc hosted a fundraising event on Saturday 21 July 2018 at the historic Milton Theatre which sold out. The highlight of the evening was a very special 'in conversation' with Markus Zusak, one of Australia's most loved authors.

Don't worry if you missed out. You can hear the whole thing on the Writes4Women podcast

You'll find some wonderful photos from the night in our  Gallery.

Our Storytelling competition was open to Shoalhaven children and adults who embraced this year’s theme ‘Footprints in the Sand’

The competition is now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered. Your work will be read by some of Australia’s most experienced authors and you’ll be in the running for some very cool prizes, not to mention a place on the 2019 Honour Roll.

We’ll post the longlist in our May newsletter so subscribe here to get the news first!

We have an exciting line up for Day One of StoryFest. Do you love crime fiction? Join us for a conversation with Michael Robotham, Candice Fox and Christian White. More of an historical fiction buff? Have dinner with Natasha Lester and Lauren Chater at Tallwood. If you’ve always wanted to write fiction, spend the day with creative writing teacher Emily Maguire. If illustration is your passion, book in for Julie Sydenham’s artistic workshop. Tickets now available. View the Program here.



Our cover pic competition is open each week for photos of the Milton-Mollymook-Ulladulla area.

The winning photographer each week will be displayed on our Facebook page as our cover pic and will go in the draw to win a full day pass to the very first Storyfest in June 2019.

Entries close at midnight each Friday. Email your photos to

Check out the gorgeous photos in our Gallery.

StoryFest is a celebration of storytelling in all its forms - whether it be through prose, poetry or song. Join us for a weekend of events, workshops and dinners in some of the finest venues Milton, Mollymook and Ulladulla have to offer. 

Visitors to StoryFest can enjoy all the glorious south coast has to offer. Venues will showcase our beautiful beaches, spectacular wilderness and historic buildings. Foodies will be impressed by our sumptuous restaurants and providores.


Telling stories, be it through prose, poetry or song, is how we connect with each other, understand our past and contemplate our future
