As a supporter of Sydney Writers' Festival, we'd like to invite you to advertise with us. 

Bookings are now open to advertise in the Sydney Writers' Festival 2023 Program Guide. 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. 


45,000 copies of the Program Guide will be distributed to bookstores and venues across Greater Sydney throughout March, April and May, as well as on-site during Festival week (20–26 May 2024).

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.
