National Young Writers' Festival 2015 Artist Call Out

Friday, March 13, 2015

The National Young Writers' Festival has opened their Artist Call Out for submissions for the 2015 program. It's a terrific festival (I attended way, way back in 2010 and had a splendid time), and it's on from October 1-4 this year in Newcastle (if you haven't been to Newcastle, it's pretty great. The restaurants are excellent).

They're after writers, poets, journalists, comedians, etc aged between 18 and 35, and it's well worth applying if you fancy taking part, even if you don't have lots of experience - it's a festival all about young and emerging writers.

According to their website:
This year we’re going into the deep – to venture into the unexplored crevices of the writing community. We are looking to include a wide scope of artists with different experiences, backgrounds and talents – a passion for writing is the only non-negotiable requirement. If you feel as strongly about words as we do, we want to hear from you, so send us your ideas. If you’re young (between 18-35), living anywhere in Australia and you’re passionate about writing, then congratulations! You’ve met all the selection criteria. 

It promises to be awesome. Submissions close March 30 at midnight. For details and to apply, check out the NYWF website.
