Emerging Writers' Festival

Support Tomorrow's Voices


For us, a little goes a long way. Celebrating creativity and innovation, nurturing new talent and providing a platform for diverse voices from across Australia is at the heart of what we do here at the Emerging Writers’ Festival.

Each year, the Emerging Writers’ Festival creates a community over eleven days of performances, panels and professional development. The crux of what we do is centering, celebrating and supporting emerging storytellers of all kinds. Over half of the events in the festival are completely free, so we rely on the generosity of our supporters  to make the festival happen.

EWF is a not-for-profit organisation with deductible gift recipient (DGR) status, and is a registered charity. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Our annual giving program helps us produce the flagship festival, as well as the Digital Writers’ Festival and our year-round programming to nurture Australia’s next generation of storytellers.

Donor Levels
Champion: $2000 +
