Seeking an opportunity to support and enhance cultural events in the Tamar Valley?
The Tamar Valley Writers Festival promises to bring some of Australia’s finest writers, guest speakers and avid readers together for three days of literary discussion and conversation in September 2018. Recognised as one of the premier writers festivals in regional Australia, now is the time to contact our team to discuss how you can be part of this exciting literary festival.
Naming rights for marquees, hosting rights to key speaker events, t-shirt logos, catering, bottled water donations, pre-Festival branding events … the ways you can help make the Tamar Valley Writers Festival 2018 a success is at your fingertips – simply, click on the email address below to alert our team to your genuine interest.
The first two Festivals attracted in excess of 2000 patrons over the three days with the 47.1% being aged over 60-year old females. This group tend to be educated and articulate, with above average discretionary income and looking for new lifestyle experiences to pursue.
Our 2018 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.
Fiction and non-fiction, poetry, song-writing and participatory writing workshops are all part of the plan. As in previous years, the Festival’s organisers are hopeful of providing free admission to children and young adults recognising them as the readers of the future. Tasmania has some of the poorest literacy levels nationwide and the organisers are keen to address this issue. Is this where your company’s generous help can make a difference in your community?
We hope we have sparked your interest and the Festival’s sponsorship team is ready to provide and help you with further information regarding sponsorship opportunities at your convenience.

Putting on a Festival is no easy task. The Tamar Valley Writers Festival operates because of the considered and in-kind support of the Tasmanian Government, funding bodies, corporate sponsors, local businesses, and the enormous energy of volunteers.
Any donation – large or small – would be welcomed by the committee to help build the success of this Festival as an important event on Northern Tasmania’s cultural calendar.

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.
