Feminist Writers Festival

Between 2016 and 2020, FWF connected feminist writers, thinkers and readers, taking standard festival programming beyond ‘feminism 101’.  

Committed to providing paid opportunities for feminist writers and thinkers, especially those whose voices are often unprioritised, FWF hosted 163 speakers at 56 events in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Geelong, Lismore, Melbourne and Sydney, and published original work by and about over 70 feminist writers/thinkers. 

With passion and dedication, FWF was ignited into being by a small group of determined women who designed an inaugural festival that facilitated deeper conversations, and gathering others, went on to create the space for challenging and creative conversations over four years, with a hugely passionate community. 

Thanks to everyone who supported FWF – from speakers and writers, audience and donors, to our many partners and extraordinary volunteers. It was a blast!
