The Newcastle Writers Festival is a not-for-profit community- centred event, regarded as a centrepiece of the Hunter Region’s vibrant arts scene.
Started by respected journalist Rosemarie Milsom in 2012, the Festival has grown year after year thanks to government grants, local businesses and an army of amazing volunteers.
Until now we have managed without individual donations but in order to keep attracting world-class writers, as well as remaining accessible to an engaged and diverse audience, we need your help.
Your generous donation will enable us to continue to run our schools program and our creative family day, as well as expand our program to bring the most thought-provoking writers and thinkers to Newcastle for 2019 and beyond.
Give what you can and help our Festival continue to thrive. Amounts over $2 are tax deductible.
