Since 2016, the Feminist Writers Festival has connected feminist writers, readers and speakers, providing a platform for critical engagement and support for feminist writers in Australia. In 2018, the FWF will expand even further, holding two festivals in Victoria and New South Wales, including showcase regional events.
Since its inception, the Feminist Writers Festival has been almost entirely volunteer-run and -managed. We are committed to providing opportunities for feminist writers across Australia whose voices are not often prioritised. This includes women, Indigenous writers, people of colour, queer writers and writers with disability. These writers deserve to be recognised for the amazing contribution they make to the Australian cultural and literary landscape.
While we have been exceptionally fortunate to receive Victorian State Government funding for FWF 2018, the festival simply needs more. When you donate today, you can be assured that your donation will go directly into all the many costs associated with running our festival events in Melbourne, Sydney and regionally. This includes costs such as venue hire, tech costs, creating our program, and publishing to our website.
More importantly, your donation will ensure that the incredible Australian writers delivering workshops and programs can be paid for their work. Today, your donation is an investment in the future of the literary arts in Australia
When you donate today, you’ll be among the first in Australia to receive the all the FWF news; including artist announcements, programming, content previews and more. 2017 events sold out early so be sure to keep an eye on your email inbox friends!
Every dollar counts so we truly thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you at the Festival!
