Melbourne Writers Festival (MWF) is for everyone who reads.
MWF is Melbourne’s annual, two-week celebration for writers, readers and thinkers. Each year in August they present the talent and ideas of hundreds of writers from Australia and around the world, through a vibrant program of storytelling, conversation and discussion, intellectual debate, educational programs, live performance, music and art events.
The Festival includes events for people of all ages and more than a third of the program is free. Our highly regarded Schools’ Program is Australia’s biggest literary festival for students.
