Festival Info

We respectfully acknowledge that Melbourne Writers Festival takes place on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri Woi-Wurrung people. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.

Melbourne Writers Festival brings writers and readers together to be inspired, challenged and thrilled by an intelligent, rousing and diverse program of books and ideas. Since 1986, the organisation has entertained hundreds of thousands of readers as Australia’s boldest literary festival. Based in Melbourne, a UNESCO City of Literature, we provide the inspiration and framework for vital, timely conversations.

MWF 2022 will return 8–11 September 2022. Sign up to our e-news to be the first to see the 2022 program when it is revealed in July.
