The Hearth

Conversations. Creativity. Ideas.

Welcome to The Hearth

The Hearth is a place where people come together to hear stories and talk with one another. We warmly invite you to gather around, settle in with a drink or two, and enjoy a night of readings.

A handpicked mix of local creative thinkers, writers, and performers share thought-provoking readings and offer a brief discussion on their writing process. Then it’s over to you, as we invite our audience to engage with our readers by asking questions and responding to their work. All this in a relaxed environment that features good beers, live tunes and the potential to make some new and excellent friends.

Come and sit with us at The Hearth, we’d love to meet you!

Come along to the next night of readings, a special Hearth event in partnership with the Australasian Association of Writing Programs, for their 22nd Annual Conference.

The theme of this special Hearth event is: 

 —What’s Lost, What Lingers—
