MWF Schools

Australia's biggest literary event for students.

MWF Schools is Australia’s biggest literary event for primary and secondary school students.

In 2020, MWF Schools delivered a free, online series of videos and education resources to teachers and students across the country.

Eight inspiring authors shared their knowledge on topics including identity, sustainability, storytelling and building resilience. MWF Schools engaged and empowered young readers—and their grown-ups—to contemplate different ways of enacting change and consider reading as a radical act.

Education resources

Our education resources were created to accompany MWF Schools. Teachers and students do not need to have read the authors’ books to engage with them. The resources are theme-based and include prompts and questions that are deliberately general in nature, so that they can be used in classrooms across year levels and cohorts.
