Feminist Writers Festival

To donate to our Subsidy Program today:

  • $25 provides a day pass
  • $75 provides a workshop place
  • $100 provides a regional subsidy to assist with travel costs.

To ensure that as many feminists outside of Melbourne CBD can attend our festival, FWF is proud to launch a regional subsidies program. We’re offering 10 subsidies of $100 each to cover regional travel, as well as a day pass to the Melbourne Festival on either Sat 26 or Sun 27 May.

Our workshop subsidies ensure that financially disadvantaged writers can take part in FWF workshops. We are offering two subsidised places in each of our two Melbourne workshops and a further two in Geelong.

Applications for subsidy places open March 30. For more information and to see the full 2018 program, please visit:

Who are Feminist Writers?

Since its inception in 2016, Feminist Writers Festival has been almost entirely volunteer run and managed. We are committed to providing opportunities for feminist writers across Australia whose voices are not often prioritised. This includes women, Indigenous writers, people of colour, queer writers and writers with disability. These writers deserve to be recognised for the amazing contribution they make to the Australian cultural and literary landscape.

Why do FWF need support?

Your donation supports FWF to fund all the many costs associated with running our festival events in Melbourne, Sydney and regionally. This includes costs such as venue hire, tech costs, creating our program, and publishing to our website.

More importantly, your donation will ensure that the incredible Australian writers delivering workshops and programs can be paid for their work. Today, your donation is an investment in the future of the literary arts in Australia.

When you donate today:

You’ll be among the first in Australia to receive the all the FWF news; including artist announcements, programming, content previews and more. 2017 events sold out early so be sure to keep an eye on your email inbox friends!

Every dollar counts so we truly thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you at the Festival!

With massive thanks,


Team FWF
