We’ve all heard the saying it takes a village to raise a child; we feel the same way about the Willy Lit Fest.

Now in its 17th year, it is one of the country’s most respected literary events, attracting some of Australia’s best-loved authors. The festival also has a strong focus on local participation and welcomes many diverse community groups to the hub.

The festival has grown so much from its early days when it first started as an idea between two book-loving friends.

Our committee of volunteers is supported by generous event volunteers, community organisations and our fabulous sponsors.

Find out how you can get involved in our wonderful festival and become part of our village.
