The Feminist Writers Festival was created in 2016 and will return this May, with a bumper lineup that will take over venues in both Melbourne and Geelong.

A space to promote and support female-identifying writers within the Australian writing sphere, FWF will again this year unfurl a program that provides critical engagement and furthers teaching and learning for all those who consider themselves feminist writers or readers — or just feminists in general.

The program (running from May 25–27 in Melbourne and May 26 in Geelong) includes, on opening night, a gala surrounding the legacy of feminist texts. There's also a forum on writing about violence against women in the public eye, workshops to aid in finding a feminist voice, and discussions with prominent female activists.

Artists such as Jax Jacki Brown, Tasneem Chopra, Clementine Ford and Tara Moss will take to the stage along with many others. Check out the website for the incredible array of feminist writers, editors and activists that attendees will be lucky enough to hear from. Head along to learn, engage, ask questions or just listen — you can buy tickets to individual sessions, a full day, or the whole weekend.
