Melbourne Writers Festival (MWF) is staffed year-round by a small team of six people: Festival Director / CEO; Marketing & Development Manager; General Manager; Program Manager; Development Executive; and Festival Administrator. The team grows as each Festival approaches and we welcome production managers, marketers, artist liaison, front-of-house and customer service staff, who bring their expertise and enthusiasm to the task of staging this ten day celebration. We are based out of our office on Little Lonsdale Street until we relocate to Fed Square for two weeks during the Festival itself. If you are interested in working with us, please check this page regularly, connect with us on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, or subscribe to our e-news via the link at the end of this page for updates on employment opportunities.
