It's you, the writers, readers, thinkers and dreamers who make Brisbane Writers Festival possible. Every year you bring your perspectives, ideas and conversations to the State Library of Queensland and other venues, contributing to the important dialogues that are shaping our world and supporting the writers who inspire, challenge and delight us.
Your conversations have the power to change established narratives, ignite imagination and foster empathy. Your conversations connect us and nurture a sense of community and belonging. At Brisbane Writers Festival we are committed to providing open space for deep talk, meaningful connection and the opportunity to build communities that bridge cultures.
Government support and ticket sales cover approximately 60% of the costs associated with running the Festival each year. We need your support now more than ever to secure the future of the Festival and prioritise literacy and creativity for the next generation. Your gift enables us to bring the finest writers from around the world to Brisbane each year.
