Emerging Writers’ Festival Callout

Want to be a part of the 2016 Emerging Writers’ Festival? This is your chance to help shape the innovative and creative program: it’s all about you! Tell us what you want to hear – the discussions about writing you want to have – and whether you want to be one of the people to lead the conversations. Tell us about other emerging writers you would like to hear from too.

The Emerging Writers’ Festival prides itself on being inclusive to everyone in the writing community, of all ages and at all stages of their career. We’re running an open artist call out for writers to put up their hands and let us know they’d like to be involved in the sure-to-be-incredible 2016 program.

The Emerging Writers’ Festival will take place from 14 June – 24 June, 2016 in Melbourne.

We’d love to hear interesting ideas about publications, performances, dialogues, panels, debates, workshops. We’re open to individual writers, but also writer collectives, emerging publications and performance groups. If you want to present a unique, innovative one off project – this is the festival for you. Projects that consider the public presentation of writing in new ways are of extra interest to us.

Whether you see yourself as an artist or audience member, we’d love to hear from you. If you’re successful, we’ll help you refine your idea and pair you with other writers. Applications are open now for the Emerging Writers’ Festival, and close November 26, 2015.
