The NSW Writers’ Centre is delighted to announce that our Kids & YA Festival on Saturday 30 June 2018, will be directed by best-selling, internationally published children’s author Belinda Murrell. To ensure the Festival will cover the emerging trends and diversity of voices in the field, Belinda is calling for submissions from people involved in the writing community.
“I’m thrilled to be directing the 2018 Festival and am looking forward to putting together a fresh, informative and inspiring program,” Murrell said. “A stellar lineup of speakers will share their diverse experiences and insights into creating books for children and young adults.”
Submissions may come from authors, illustrators, e-book and traditional trade publishers, independent publishers, agents and other interested parties. Involvement may take the form of panel speakers, chair responsibilities, mentoring or manuscript feedback sessions.
To register your interest, please send your name, address, telephone and website details to FestivalsWritingNSW@gmail.com.
Submissions must be a single A4 page or less, and include details of your publication experience, any upcoming releases around the time of the festival and suggested panel topics or specific areas of expertise.
The Festival program will be released in May 2018.
