MUD Literary Club has a simple charter - to support Australian literary talent and two of the great literary festivals dedicated to presenting these authors, being Adelaide Writers Week and Ubud Writers and Readers Festival in Bali.

Incredibly, MUD is the only philanthropic group of this type in the nation, and is therefore greatly valued by authors, along with the wider literary, publishing and artistic communities, for providing such valuable funds.

For the sum of $500 per individual for annual membership, MUD will continue to pledge significant amounts to authors and literary festivals on your behalf – underlining the value of great Australian literature and its rightful elevated place in the community.

Active membership will be held in a confidential database. Where contributions are to be acknowledged, members may request anonymity. 

Corporate sponsorship and contributions will be by negotiation and may include ‘in kind’ support in return for recognition by
MUD LITERARY CLUB through its membership.
