Support Us

Storylines welcomes support from  individuals, schools, libraries, other literary organisations and companies.

Our philosophy is that entry to the Storylines Festival is free, so that access to books and those who create them is available to all families, regardless of economic circumstances.

We thank our funders and sponsors, and invite you to join them by contacting Executive Officer Gillian Wess.

We also welcome volunteer support, at our events, and with managing and/or selecting books and winners for our many Awards.
