“The rewards are seeing the impact our donations have on Western Australian writers and readers at a grassroots level and knowing that we are really helping writers to develop. Ten years later I can still say categorically that a … donation invested in Writing WA is by far the best return on investment and reward, more than any other (arts) organisation.”
Phil Thick, Writing WA Literary Lion
Our sector needs you
Can you help us to grow a state of opportunity for writers, books and literary culture in Western Australia by making an optional donation that will help to support WA writers and illustrators who have lost the majority of their income as a result of Covid-19.
Our sector needs your support more than ever before. Writers are part of the gig economy. They rely on author talks, festival appearances, workshops and schools activities to generate the majority of their income. With your support Writing WA will establish a Writers Engagement Fund to enable these activities to continue through the disruption of Covid-19.
While we continue to work in isolation, the Fund will be used to enable writers to participate in virtual events. As soon as the world opens up again, the Fund will be used to kick start and enable live events to resume.
Please help to keep our writing culture alive with your donations.
Make a secure online credit card donation.
