The Williamstown Literary Festival is staffed by a committee of dedicated volunteers who are committed to improving and promoting the benefits of literacy, reading and writing to the western suburbs of Melbourne and beyond. We are passionate about the written word, and we are eager to share this passion with our audiences and increase their enjoyment and appreciation of books and words.

Donations are used to support the festival’s programming, logistics and infrastructure, and to ensure the Williamstown Literary Festival is managed professionally, sustainably and effectively every year. The Williamstown Literary Festival committee actively pursues sponsorships, donations and in-kind contributions in order to create a unique and special event for our audiences. We are committed to continuous improvement, and producing a quality festival for all ages.

All donations over $100 will be listed in the Williamstown Literary Festival printed program. Every year, hundreds of these programs are distributed to cafes, restaurants, businesses, residents and stakeholders to promote the festival.
