Support MWF

As a not-for-profit organisation, every moment of joy, connection and curiosity you shared at MWF is the direct result of someone's generosity. This end of financial year, donate to MWF so we can create more extraordinary moments with you.

Melbourne Writers Festival is a not-for-profit organisation – which means we never make a profit from your ticket purchases or donations. Everything goes back into putting on the Festival you love. The conversations you hear in beautiful Melbourne venues, book signings with your favourite writers, connecting with friends over an extraordinary event – it is only made possible thanks to your support.


You’re a community of people who wonder about words. Who relish them. Write them. Dream them. Challenge them. This is your festival. A festival for the imaginative, the thoughtful, the curious.

And its future is in your hands. 

Only through the support of people like you can we not only be your trusted curator of vital, timely conversations, but also do more of what you love – podcasts, live-streamed sessions, free events, self-determined First Nations curated programming, our MWF Schools program, events with debut writers and emerging voices, workshops and more.

Help us deliver more of what you love with the writers you love to read.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Melbourne Writers Festival. It’s easy – just select the button below and in less than one minute you will have helped us put on the 2024 festival!
