About Us

LEA is a not-for-profit organization incorporated in 2016.
Under its banner, there is a year-round calendar of events and festivals.

 These events can take many forms –

In Conversations

Book Launches


Theatre style performances

Literary festivals


The aim of Literary Events Australia (LEA) is to create and present events that have their basis in the world of literature.  LEA is made up of a group of talented and highly experienced people including booksellers with decades of experience in both bookselling and events management.


Partnering with various organisations to stage these events, LEA will utilize the best Melbourne has to offer in venues throughout the city centre and regional Victoria. When travelling interstate to facilitate or present literary events, LEA will ensure the high standard is maintained.


Expressions of interest are welcome from authors, publishers, performers and literary organisations to engage LEA to work with them to host events and festivals.
