Emerging Writers' Festival 2017



The Emerging Writers' Festival, Australia’s premier festival for new and emerging writers, features ten days of exploration, professional development and entertainment designed for storytellers of all kinds from June 14 – 23.

EWF features over 200 new and emerging writers and brings conviviality to the writers’ festival circuit with parties, performances, poetry slams, panels and networking events.

Programmed in venues across Melbourne’s CBD, Footscray and Dandenong, the festival includes the EWF Formal, celebrating 25 years since the publication of Melina Marchetta’s classic Looking for Alibrandi; Tipping Points, a play about climate change created in 24 hours; and Love Show, a performance by Quippings: Disability Unleashed, a collective of performers with bodies and minds of unending variation.

EWF is committed to providing professional development opportunities for writers through the National Writers’ Conference, industry insider events and day-long masterclasses. Budding authors can pitch directly to publishers, delve into writing YA, and explore freelancing, short stories and screenwriting.
