Byron Writers Festival annual membership drive offers best ever prizes!


Byron Writers Festival kicks off its 2020 Membership Drive on 3 February and invites you to join or renew as a member to support the creative arts in regional Australia, with some incredible prizes on offer.

Festival Director Edwina Johnson says “We receive less than twenty percent of our revenue from public funding, so the generous support of those who join our ‘festival family’ is vital to enable us to share so many remarkable stories and ideas with our audiences.

‘Membership numbers continue to grow every year, to the point where we now have a thriving community of writers, readers and storytellers who care deeply about the importance of literature, ideas and debate in shaping our culture.”

Benefits of being a member include discounts on Festival tickets, subscription to the Festival magazine northerly, and year-round opportunities and events. The membership drive runs until 1 March and includes incredible prizes from a number of local brands including Brookfarm, Fallen Broken Street, NORPA, Puremelt Chocolate, Seed & Sprout and Temple of the Sun. Not to mention the incredible major prize of a Weekend for Two to the 2020 Byron Writers Festival, with a ‘staycation’ at the stunning Bask & Stow in Byron Bay, plus 3-Day Festival passes, valued at over $1300.
