Support MWF


Support Australia’s boldest literary festival 

For more than three decades, Melbourne Writers Festival has brought audiences together with the leading thinkers of the day to share the most rousing stories, explore the thorniest topics, and celebrate the transporting power of books.  

With your support, Australia’s boldest literary festival will inspire audiences for decades to come. 

Donations of all sizes have a powerful impact across three key areas: 

Excellence – bringing together the most exciting authors from around the world to participate in challenging, provocative and timely conversations 

Education – providing 4,000 Victorian primary and secondary students each year with their own tailored festival experience through MWF Schools, nurturing the next generation of readers and storytellers 

Equity – ensuring people from all communities can participate in Melbourne Writers Festival, both as speakers and as audience members, through inclusive programming and access initiatives   

Gifts of $500 and above are acknowledged publicly on our website and in print. 

If you’re in a position to commit to a regular monthly or annual gift, your continued support will help us plan ahead for many more years of vibrant literary programming. Select ‘Regular Donation’ in the above tab to create an automatic payment plan. 

Melbourne Writers Festival thanks you for your support.
