DWF Artist Call Out 2017

Applications for the 2017 Digital Writers’ Festival have now closed.

The Digital Writers’ Festival is an online-first writers’ festival dedicated to celebrating the work of writers from Australia and across the world, and fostering new relationships through collaboration between writers, where ever they may be.

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 2017 program. Best of all, location is no barrier to access – you can be anywhere from Darwin to Dunedin, Johannesburg to Jaipur.

The Digital Writers’ Festival will take place from 26 October – 3 November 2017, right here on the internet.

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 close July 23.

We look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you online for DWF 2017!
