See more of the Festival for less.
Purchase a Festival Pass for the 2019 Melbourne Writers Festival, which will take place from 30 August to 8 September 2019. Passes can be redeemed when tickets go on sale in July 2019.
A 5 Pass lets you see 5 of the best standard MWF sessions (individually priced at $25/$19) at a great discount.
Pass is valid for standard sessions only (those priced $25/$19) and excludes special events (such as Opening and Closing Night), highlights, showcases, walks, workshops and other non-standard sessions.
Tickets must be pre-booked to the Pass to guarantee a seat. Simply purchase your 5 Pass now, then use your Pass number to secure your seat at your favourite standard events when tickets go on sale in July 2019.
We've heard you! In 2019, Passes can be used to book more than one ticket per session, so you and a friend (or four) can enjoy the best of MWF for less.
This is an electronic Pass. You will receive a ticket for each session redeemed.
Booking with a Pass
Each Pass you buy will generate a unique 7-digit Pass number (found on the receipt). Keep this number close to your heart (or pocket) and follow the instructions in your receipt email to redeem your sessions. Redeeming onto your Pass is completely free – no additional costs apply once the Pass has been purchased.
