A Weekend Pass is the easiest and most economical way to attend the Wollongong Writers Festival, giving you access to program events* across both days of the main festival weekend. If you aren’t able to join us for the whole weekend, a Saturday Pass or Sunday Pass will give you access to program events* for that day. When you purchase your pass you will receive a code to book your seat at individual events so you can be sure you won't miss a thing. To purchase your multi-event pass, click on one of the options below, then return to this page to secure your seat at each of the individual events you wish to attend.

 

All ticket purchases incur an additional $0.50 booking fee per ticket

 

*Please note, the Weekend Pass, Saturday Pass and Sunday Pass do not include access to the following events: The ‘Enough Said x Solid Air Launch’ on Thursday, November 21; the two writing workshops on Friday, November 22; and the three catered events ('Politics', 'Law School' and ‘Dead Letters Club’) during the main festival weekend. Tickets to those events must be purchased separately.
