Become a Patron

Our Festival Patrons play a vital role in the life of our organisation. It is only with your generous support that we're able to showcase the highest calibre of writers and deliver a world-renowned program of talks and panels across both the Sydney Writers' Festival and the Children's Festival of Moving Stories. 

Our Patrons are passionate supporters of discussion, debate and the exchange of ideas. As a Patron, your tax-deductible annual gift enables us to sustain the artistic excellence of Australia's largest literary festival and brings the joy of books to new audiences.

In recognition of your generosity, you'll enjoy a suite of exclusive benefits, including a priority booking window, a dedicated Festival representative, invitations to members-only events and our comfortable, fully catered and much-loved Patron Lounge.
