Welcome back to the 4th annual Dunedin Literary Festival, quaintly known as Words in the Woods. Our keynote speaker this year is award-winning author Diana Beresford-Kroeger! We are working hard to pull together this year's author lineup, please check back regularly for updates.

As always, Words in the Woods is a free, family-friendly event with lots of things for kids to do. Bring a picnic blanket and stay for the day to make great memories for the whole family! It also happens rain or shine so please dress appropriately.

"Our mission is to bring arts, culture and literature to everyone, to make it accessible and break down barriers and change perceptions, and do it in a fun atmosphere. We’re incorporating everything this region is known for, such as music, food and the arts, all in one place with literature at its core." — Rina Barone, festival co-organizer
