A festival filled with the worlds best writers launches tomorrow: Melbourne Writers Festival
Get ready! Melbourne Writers Festival Digital begins this Friday. Throughout August explore an inspiring line-up of more than 100 of the world’s best writers and thinkers as they converge under the banner of the Festivals theme: Attention.
In a series of online conversations, workshops, podcasts, new writing and more, pre book your online sessions today. The theme will encourage discussions on who we give our attention to and why, unpack how crises and other major events force us to reconsider how we connect with each other and our environment. Writers will also celebrate their books and writing that hold our attention despite the world in which we find ourselves.
The festivals ‘pay what you can’ initiative enables the program to be fully accessible giving you the choice from $5, $10, $20 or $50 per ticket, or make a FREE booking.
“We don’t want money to be a barrier to accessing the program, but we’re also making it possible for audiences to be generous where they can, to keep MWF going strong.”
