Support Australia's boldest literary festival with a tax-deductible donation.

As a not-for-profit organisation, Melbourne Writers Festival relies on the generosity of our patrons to help us deliver an ambitious, inclusive and incisive program of literary events, year on year.

We weathered the challenges of 2020 thanks to the extraordinary support of our donors, partners, and the audiences who attended our digital events.

Now we invite you to join our community of MWF supporters as we look ahead to the next exciting phase, beginning with a bold 2021 program from our new Artistic Director, Michaela McGuire, presented across live and digital spaces.
