About the 2019 Melbourne Writers Festival:
The overarching theme of MWF19, When We Talk About Love, is derived from What We Talk About When We Talk About Love, the title of a 1981 collection of short stories by American writer Raymond Carver.

At this year’s Festival, MWF invites a broad spectrum of authors, journalists, playwrights, poets, songwriters and artists to share their passions.

Ferve Tickets are proud to support this year's MWF program.
Whether you're buying tickets online or at the box office, knowing where to be for the next show, or having your tickets and passes when you need them, we're with you the whole way.

Easy to use

This is a nice, clean app, easy to use. Love the ability to buy e-tickets that are stored on the phone and scanned on location.
I miss the ability to sync with my calendar (Sydney Writers Festival app does this). Also, there should be an iPad version.

No exchange function

Although the app states you can return/exchange tickets, the MWF does not actually allow this. If it’s physically possible- as it is with say MIFF, I don’t see why they don’t let you do this. Pretty disappointed after spending money on the pass, thinking this was an option.

Great to use,now that festival underway. Certainly easier than the rather messy printed programme. Shame app only in iPhone format and not for tablets.
