The MWF would not be possible without the support of our partners and supporters.

MWF is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to producing Victoria’s premier, annual literary event.

Around 50% of our annual income is achieved through the valuable corporate partnerships, philanthropic support and donations that make the Festival possible.

This important support contributes to all areas of the Festival and our Schools’ Program, including author fees, travel and accommodation for Festival guests, production costs and venue hire.

Ongoing support is vital to ensure MWF continues to deliver excellent programming and is able to offer free entry to at least a quarter of Festival events.
