Since its inception, the Feminist Writers Festival has been almost entirely volunteer-run and managed. We are committed to providing opportunities for feminist writers whose voices are not often prioritised, including 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 fortunate to receive Victorian State Government funding for FWF 2018, the festival simply needs more. Your donation will go directly into the many costs associated with running our festival events, including venue hire, tech, 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.
Every dollar counts so we truly thank you for your support!
