Bookings are open

The 2021 Sydney Writers’ Festival Program Guide will be inserted in The Sydney Morning Herald's 'Spectrum' on Saturday 13 March 2021.

In addition, 65,000 copies will be:

  • distributed to bookstores, cafes, libraries and arts venues across Sydney throughout March and April (seven-week plus shelf life)
  • dropped in letterboxes in the inner-West suburbs surrounding Carriageworks and handed out at transport hubs and arts events
  • available onsite during the Festival week (26 April–2 May).

Sydney Writers’ Festival audiences are engaged, passionate and seek to be challenged by a program of events with ideas that resonate long after the Festival ends. They are avid consumers of literature, theatre, film, dance, opera, classical music, the arts and cultural events.

Our official Program Guide is the primary means of finding out about the Festival program. By advertising in the guide, you can reach a loyal, discerning audience of people who are media savvy, socially minded and passionate patrons of the arts.
