We all need to find shelter in words, comfort in stories and connection with others during the difficult months ahead.

For more than three decades, MWF has invited audiences to step out of their everyday lives and consider ideas that challenge, inspire and unite us. As part of Melbourne’s vital literary culture, we must continue to celebrate readers, writers and storytelling in all forms.

We need your financial support as we transition to a digital festival for 2020. Make a tax-deductible donation today.

Your investment in MWF supports the following areas:


Bringing the most exciting local and international writers to Melbourne for a festival of diverse, challenging and inspiring conversations.

Excellence feature image.


Fostering the next generation of storytellers through the Schools’ Program, Australia’s biggest literary event for students.

Education featured image.


Keeping Festival events affordable and accessible for new audiences, and supporting us to empower diverse communities through new programming and co-presentations.

We welcome donations of all sizes, with gifts of $500 and above acknowledged publicly on our website and in print.
