MWF Schools

Join us for this year’s spectacular MWF Schools (6–9 May), where students learn straight from some of the most exciting storytelling talents in the country!

Get ready for an action-packed day of learning this May at State Library Victoria as MWF Schools has a stellar program in store for students.

Across the four sessions of the day, award-winning authors and acclaimed illustrators engage students in a broad range of topics, from the craft of writing and challenges of growing up to ecology, innovation, science and First Nations knowledges. Each session is directly linked to key curriculum areas and objectives.

In between sessions, students can have their books signed by their favourite authors and they can also purchase books from Readings Bookstore on the day. We hope to see your school there!

Please note: There is a limit of 100 student tickets per school group. We have also introduced an invoice payment option, if paying via bank card is not suitable for your school. If you have any questions, please contact ticketing@mwf.com.au or call 03 9999 1199.
