School bags

For safety and convenience, Melbourne Writers Festival suggests that students do not bring their school bags with them to the Festival. 


Schools' Program participants are welcome to bring their own lunch, however, no food or drink may be consumed inside the festival venues. Cafés and food outlets will be open during the Festival.  

Photo permissions

Melbourne Writers Festival employs the services of a professional photographer to record events throughout the Festival. These photos are for archival and marketing purposes. The purchase of a ticket grants implied permission for these photos to be used for the intended purposes. If you, or any students in your care, do not wish to be photographed, please inform the photographer at the venue or contact a festival representative on the day.
