The Emerging Writers’ Festival is looking for members of our extended community to be part of the Program Advisory Committee (PAC) for 2022-2023. The PAC is formed of members of the literary and broader community who represent a diverse range of views and interests, so to best help source a variety of writers for the festival. This could include readers, writers, storytellers, editors, booksellers and other industry experts.

The PAC plays a vital role in festival programming, and is a key part of how the festival program responds to the needs of our community and audiences to ensure it remains relevant to emerging writers of all kinds. As a member of the PAC, you will work closely with the EWF Artistic Director and Program Coordinator to provide suggestions, feedback and direction on the 2022 and 2023 festival programs.

In recognition of their commitment to EWF and appreciation of contribution to the development of the program, PAC members receive a full access pass to the festival and acknowledgement in our program and online.

There are 4 positions available on the committee for the 2022-2023 term. The PAC are required to attend at least 75% of the four annual meetings – more details are outlined in the information pack.

You can view current members of the PAC here.

Expressions of Interest for the PAC are open until 5pm AEDT, Monday October 18.
