NYWF Artist Call Out 2017

Artist Call Outs for the 2017 This is Not Art Festival, comprising National Young Writers’ Festival (NYWF), Crack Theatre Festival and Critical Animals Festival, are open from the beginning of February until the end of March!

Can you believe it’s that time all over again? We’re looking for applications for NYWF in our 20th year. The National Young Writers’ Festival is a free and accessible festival held in Newcastle, NSW over the weekend of September 28 – October 1. Applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 35 inclusive (under 18s can take part in the Younger Young Writers’ Festival).

This year we want to shake it up with a fresh batch of writers who will be the journalists, poets, novelists, essayists, bloggers, podcasters and content-makers of tomorrow and beyond. If you have never applied to the festival before, or don’t even think that you should, think again. You definitely should. It will be the long weekend you’ll never regret.

unnamedYou can find out more by reading up on our Info Pack and FAQs and if you still have questions, don’t hesitate to contact one of our intrepid Co-Directors.

You can find the application form below, or at this external link. We would strongly encourage you to consider applying for our sister festivals, Crack Theatre Festival and Critical Animals. All the information and application forms are available at the TiNA website.

We can’t wait to read your beautiful and inspiring ideas for the shape of the 2017 NYWF, so get writing!
