About the Digital Writers’ Festival

The Digital Writers’ Festival is an online-first writers’ festival dedicated to celebrating the work of writers from Australia and across the world, and fostering new relationships through collaboration between writers, where ever they may be.

DWF is a product of the Emerging Writers’ Festival, a not-for-profit organisation whose foundations are built on supporting emerging writers. EWF is a place where creativity and innovation are celebrated, where new talent is nurtured and where diverse voices from across Australia are represented.

The 2017 Digital Writers’ Festival runs from Tuesday 24 October – Friday 3 November.

Catch up on all of the events from DWF 20162015 and 2014.
