In 2015 we are celebrating 30 years of inspiring conversation at Melbourne Writers Festival. There have been thousands of thought-provoking discussions from a long list of brilliant Festival guests over the years. But each year it is our audience that brings the Festival to life by responding passionately to the writing and ideas at the heart of our events.
We want to share our anniversary with Melbourne’s readers, so this year we’re inviting you to play a part in shaping the Festival as an Audience Advocate.
We're appointing a committee of our audience members – Audience Advocates – who’ll have a say in the 2015 Festival program. Our Audience Advocates will work directly with me, helping the MWF programming team create a Festival that is interesting, innovative and relevant to Melbourne’s reading community.
We’re looking for all kinds of readers and all kinds of ideas! So if you’re passionate about reading and love MWF, this is a great opportunity to get involved, come behind-the-scenes and contribute to the future direction of the Festival. Find out more and apply here.
If you have ideas you can’t wait to share, our new Digital Suggestion Box is now live! All ideas submitted here or via Facebook or Twitter will be reviewed and considered by our programming team, so don’t hold back!
I can’t wait to hear your ideas and to share our 30th Festival with you in 2015.
