Become a Patron

Ensure the ongoing success of the Central Coast’s first and only literary festival, become a Words on the Waves Patron today.

Patron Program

Heading into our fourth year, the Words on the Waves committee would like to thank the Central Coast community for their ongoing support. We are so delighted with the attendance at the festival, and the passion that you all have for good books and good conversation. To date we have been blessed with such brilliant authors as Charlotte Wood, Craig Silvey, Hannah Kent, Richard Fidler, Pip Williams, Shankari Chandran, Thomas Mayor, Bryan Brown and so many more. We have been very fortunate that this not-for-profit  has been so successful and it has taken a great team to bring it all together.

The future promises to be even bigger and brighter, and to make it happen we need your help.


For a commitment of $1000 you will receive:

  • An invitation to private launch event of the Words on the Waves Writers Festival
  • A ticket to both: The Words on the Waves Opening Address  & a Reserved Seat Day Pass to either the Saturday or Sunday Main Program
  • Acknowledgement in the Festival Program book and on screen at Festival events
  • Words on the Waves tote and gift


If you have any questions please contact Benny Agius on M: 0427 559 800 or email

Thank you for your support.
