Applications are now open for emerging writers, artists and creatives of all kinds to be part of Australia’s premiere festival for writers! Each year we program artists from around Australia, and a huge portion of our final program comes from the open artist call-out.

If you don’t know, Emerging Writers’ Festival is primarily a festival for writers – our audience and our artists are all storytellers of various kinds. Our mission is to champion, develop and promote Australia’s new writing talent. A commitment to diversity, inclusivity and accessibility underpin EWF’s artistic program. Over the past 20 years, we’ve cultivated a national community of storytellers who are inclusive, critical, rigorous and engaged. Now you can join this community!!

Applications are open until 5PM AEDT, 11 February 2024.
