We are thrilled to announce funding from the Victorian Government’s Office of Prevention and Women’s Equality for the 2018 Feminist Writers Festival.

Awarding the funding, Minister for Women Natalie Hutchins said: “Festivals like this contribute to a greater dialogue about the power of women, their ideas and contributions to our society and culture.”

A four-day festival in Melbourne and regional centres will take place in May 2018. Stay tuned for programming details by signing up to our newsletter. Please note we are in the early stages of planning, and are not currently accepting programming pitches or submissions.
