The Feminist Writers Festival (FWF) was established to support and promote feminist writers in Australia by hosting a biannual feminist writers festival and a range of one-off events throughout Australia. The FWF builds on existing themes and voices around feminism and women’s writing by offering a space for critical engagement and practical support for all feminist writers and readers.
Our inaugural festival took place over three amazing days, and brought together feminist writers and readers to connect and strengthen the diverse writing communities that exist around Australia. Hosted in partnership with the Melbourne Writers Festival, the 2016 Feminist Writers Festival comprised a sold out networking day on Friday 26 August at the Queen Victoria Women’s Centre, and five (packed out) public events, co-hosted by the Melbourne Writers Festival, on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 August at Federation Square and Footscray Community Arts Centre.
We would like to thank our amazing volunteers, speakers, supporters, sponsors, partners, steering committee and attendees for making our inaugural festival such a success. We look forward to working with you again in the future.
