The Emerging Writers’ Festival (EWF) takes place 16-26 June The festival will be held completely online and is accessible anywhere to anyone with an internet connection.
Every few days throughout the festival, we’ll send out an eNews sent straight to your inbox filled with information on the events and projects you can get involved with.
Make sure you sign up here to get these eNews so we can keep in touch during EWF.
Yes, Discord is where a lot of the daily conversations will take place between the attendees during EWF. It’ll essentially be a free reign group chat between our EWF friends while the festival is on. Join our general chat and make sure you read our Community Guidelines on our Discord as the chat won’t be monitored 24/7, but we welcome you to use it as a space to network, chat about the events and connect with a community of like-minded digital storytelling champs.
The National Writers’ Conference is the centrepiece of the EWF. It’s the place to be for emerging writers who are hungry to hear from leaders in the field, develop their skills, meet their peers and forge connections within the industry.
The conference takes place over one day, is online and hosted on Zoom. You can tune in live or watch on-demand later.
