To ensure Byron Writers Festival can continue to support and nurture writers, readers and storytellers please make a donation today. As a not-for-profit organisation run with a small team of staff and volunteers, contributions of any size go a long way in enriching the creative culture of our community. Amounts over $2 are tax deductible.
Your donations will:
Enable us to bring the most significant national and international writers and thinkers to the annual Festival.
Fund the professional development of emerging regional writers through our Residential Mentorship program.
Bring together local writers and industry professionals through our year-round workshop program.
Foster the next generation of readers and writers through our free creative writing workshop for schools – StoryBoard – and our annual Festival schools program.
For donations of over $1,000 call Emma on 02 6685 5115 or email [email protected]. Donors of $1000 or more will be acknowledged in the Festival printed program* and on the Festival website.
*Donation must be received before 1 June 2017
