Feminist Writers Festival

Pay the Writers


FWF is aware that many writers are facing significant challenges in the face of COVID-19. Writers often supplement their earnings with paid talks, presentations and public appearances, and these are being cancelled out of civic and social responsibility to reduce infection risk.

FWF is committed to commissioning more works by Australian feminist writers and spreading the reach of their inspiring and valuable work. Please help us show writers that we value their contributions and the role they play in the arts and in our community.

We need more funding to make these additional commissions happen. Please support our #PayTheWriters campaign by donating to this campaign, and we will commission more paid work by Australia's brightest and thought-provoking feminist writers.

Whether you can or can't contribute, we ask that you share the link to this page or our CrowdRaiser page. The more people who can join in, the more we can pay the writers (and our editors)!

Thank you for supporting our community of writers and readers.
