MWF is an annual literary event held in July bringing some of Australia's finest writers to the Mallee region for a weekend of panels, readings, interviews and discussions. Established and emerging writers are acknowledged through the Philip Hodgins Memorial
Medal, the Tina Kane Emergent Writer Award, the PEN Melbourne Mildura Indigenous Writers Award and the Mildura Writers Festival Writer in Residence program. The atmosphere is intimate and convivial and made more so with meals featuring the food of
celebrity cook Stefano de Pieri. Guests and audience members share an experience that provides thoughtful and challenging ideas about writing and literature in general. It is an enriching weekend that attracts return visitors and provides cultural enrichment for
remote and regional audiences.
