Volunteering & EWF

Since our 2022 festival, EWF’s (unpaid) Volunteer Program has been re-developed into an ongoing partnership with RMIT University’s schools of Media and Communication: Creative Writing, Masters of Writing and Publishing, and Professional Writing and Editing in order to provide development within the literary sector to festival volunteers that is more structured and equitable.
