Seeking an opportunity to make a positive difference in the community?
The Tamar Valley Writers Festival brings some of Australia’s finest writers, guest speakers and avid readers together for three days of literary discussion and conversation. Recognised as one of the premier writers festivals in regional Australia, it provides sponsors and partners a wonderful opportunity to connect directly with patrons and other supporters.
The first three Festivals attracted more than 5000 patrons with almost half mature-age females. Predominantly, we attract a demographic who is educated and articulate, with above average discretionary income and looking for new lifestyle experiences to pursue.
Our 2020 Festival is being shaped to recognise this strong demographic but with fresh inclusions on the program to encourage children’s love for the written word and teenagers’ fascination for romance fantasy and science fiction.
We are passionate about continuing to ensure accessibility for all. We do this by keeping ticket prices low and free-of-charge to children and young adults to encourage literacy, promote young writers and recognise readers of the future. Tasmania has some of the poorest literacy levels nationwide and the organisers are keen to address this issue. By partnering with us, you are directly making a positive difference in the community.
Please contact our team to discuss how you can be part of this exciting literary festival. We offer naming and hosting rights packages, and marketing and brand placement opportunities.

As a not-for-profit organisation, Tamar Valley Writers Festival relies on the generous support of volunteers to assist with the successful delivery of our biennial Festival and other special events.
Volunteering is a great way to be involved. We provide a friendly and supportive environment, where volunteers learn new and valuable skills, meet people who share their interests and above all, have an enjoyable and rewarding experience. All our volunteers will receive a bag of goodies and a Festival Pass, giving free entry to selected Festival events.
There are several volunteer roles we need to fill to help the Festival run smoothly, and to assist with other planned events over the next 12 months. We would love to know what may interest you – from pre-Festival special author events, fundraising events, office assistance, ushering, ticket office, set-up/pack down, publicity/communications, hospitality, being part of our artist transport team and artist liaison.
You don’t need experience – just a willingness to be part of the team in making this a fun and successful event.
If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you. Please complete the online expression of interest form and return it to us. The form can be saved, filled out digitally and e-mailed.
Volunteer orientation and induction will be provided closer to the 2018 Festival.
