3 Day Pass will allow entry into the Byron Bay Writers Festival site, where you will find five beautiful white marquees with in conversations, panels, readings, lectures and book launches running concurrently. Most sessions are an hour in length, and you can sit and listen for an entire session or wander between marquees as the fancy takes you. The day starts at 9am and the last session will conclude at 5pm. There are coffee and food vendors or you are more then welcome to bring a picnic. Mary Ryan's will have a splendid bookshop in operation, so you may indulge yourself with the books by the authors to whom you have listened. Most authors will be in the book signing area after their sessions.

A Youth Pass allows entry on Sunday only, where the Youth Marquee is turned over to children’s authors and the kids are able to meet their favourites.
