Each year, EWF opens a highly publicised call-out for artists and writers to submit an expression of interest in participating in the Festival. Writers are invited to share not only their individual work, but their ideas for the events, topics and conversations that they want to be included within the festival.
Diversity, inclusivity and accessibility are the core values that underpin EWF’s artistic program, offering a unique opportunity for writers of all ages and backgrounds, representing all genres and styles of writing, to participate in and engage with.
Each year we program almost 300 artists from around Australia, and are committed to selecting 25% of these from the open artist call-out. This year we have some funding to fly artists to Melbourne, so we would love to see applications from all over Australia!
The 2018 Emerging Writers’ Festival will run from 19-29 June in Melbourne. The artist call-out closes December 3, 2017.
