The three-day festival was open to students from the college and from Geraldton, Butine, Corrigin and Mandurah schools.

More than 30 Australian writers, poets, illustrators, critics and filmmakers attended with many taking part in year’s feature event, the Great Debate chaired by Melbourne comedian Rod Quantock.

Funds raised through the festival will go to supporting the work done by the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.
