2022 Emerging Writers’ Festival Artist Callout

Date: Mon November 8 2021 12:00 am to Fri December 3 2021 11:59 pm

The Emerging Writers’ Festival is 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. Two of our core artistic drivers are to provide professional development opportunities to emerging writers, and to support emerging writers to engage new and larger audiences.

A commitment to diversity, inclusivity and accessibility underpin EWF’s artistic program. Through our annual festival we seek to cultivate a national community of storytellers who are inclusive, critical, rigorous and engaged. You can have a look at our programming commitments here.

Each year we program artists from around Australia, and are committed to selecting 25% of these from the open artist call-out. This year, the total number of artists programmed in the online festival was 225 artists. Of the overall total, 64 artists were programmed from the Open Call Out (28%).

In 2019 (our most recent in-person festival), the total number of artists programmed in the festival was 334, so that translates to a minimum of 83 spots for artists from the open call-out. We programmed over 100 artists from the 340 applications.
