2024 Southern Highlands Writers' Festival



Host an author

What a thrill to have one of Australia’s greatest writers in your spare bedroom!

As the SHWF does not receive local, state or federal government funding, we are always looking to find other ways to financially stage this major event.

One way you can contribute to the ongoing future of the SHWF is to host one, or some, of our writers in your own home, saving us on accommodation costs.

I know how wonderful and generous Highlanders are, so if you have a warm and cosy spare bedroom, self-contained flat, farm, or home, over the SHWF weekend of 26th to 28th July, then we want to hear from you ASAP.

Your generosity will not only help with the running costs of the SHWF, but be something that you will remember forever, as you get to know on a more personal note, some of the incredible talent that will be heading to the Highlands this winter. In return, we will also sing your praise from the top of Mount Gibraltar and offer you various wonderful benefits.
