The Mic & Pen are festival essentials. 

They’re the tools Brisbane Writers Festival provides writers and thought leaders to connect with festivalgoers and fans. 

The Mic - to share their perspective, ideas and stories with festival audiences at live events. 

The Pen - to personally connect with avid readers who line up to meet their literary heroes and have their stacks of treasured books signed. 

Through a tax-deductible gift of $250* join our collective of passionate philanthropists whose support is as essential to the festival as the Mic & Pen.

You’ll receive opportunities to connect with other creative and cultural leaders, including:

  •  a one-of-a-kind, personalised thank you from a festival artist, which we’ll proudly display in our Mic & Pen online supporter gallery
  • an invitation to an exclusive Chapter One event at the festival to network with other ambassadors who share your love of the literary arts
  • a tax-deductible gift receipt and the satisfaction that you’ve provided the opportunity for passionate fans to hear from and meet their literary heroes (that’s pretty cool).

*Why $250? Your gift will cover the cost of an artist’s speaker fee for next year’s Festival.
