The Emerging Writers’ Festival team is excited to announce we are relaunching our digital journal in early 2013 and that we are looking for three writers to partake in a six month digital publication mentorship. We want writers chasing their own obsessions – books, films, music, travel, art criticism, science fiction, graphic novels, non-fiction, poetry and on and on – who can develop a strong individual voice within our super busy blog and engage readers at a national and international level. Basically, we want to give you the space and resources to develop your writing while introducing you to our audience.

We’re particularly keen on discovering writers with interests in podcasting, video blogging and new forms of digital publishing.

You will write six blog posts over six months and be paid $75 for each post on invoice, following publication. Mentorship will include a blogging masterclass and ongoing editorial support during the six months blogging residency.

Please send a short paragraph about why you want to join the EWF digital publication mentorship program and what you would like to write about, including a link to your blog and/or a work you have published online.

Applications close at 7pm on Sunday 16 December. Email your application to
