The evening includes live music, a three-course dinner and a drink upon arrival. A cash bar will be available. Hear from guest speakers Jane Caro and Bryan Brown, with Richard Glover your host for the night.

WestWords believes in the power of literature and literacy (written, oral and visual), self-expression and creativity to change the lives of young people and children and the experience of communities within Western Sydney.

In 2018 alone, we partnered with over 30 organisations, an additional 29 primary and high schools working with 95 professional writers, educators, editors, and allied artists. But we need your support to reach even more young people.

Please join us for an evening of great food, excellent speakers, enticing silent auctions and fascinating conversation with published writers and illustrators who will share their personal stories and experiences at each table.

Why are we looking for your support?

We see a huge need for what we do. WestWords does change lives. With the money raised from our Wealth of Words Fundraising Dinner we will continue to develop and present a broad program of activities that promote reading, writing and storytelling by children and young people. We want to collaborate and partner with other cultural groups with similar objectives, both within Australia and overseas and we would like to develop a range of resources to support literature development capacity in schools, communities and cultural organisations.

Your support will help change the lives of young people and children in Western Sydney.

The event will be at the MacLaurin Hall.
