It’s that time of the year again and we are looking for amazing individuals to undertake our unique internship program – our awesome Creative Producers!
As a valued member of the Emerging Writers’ Festival team, you will take ownership of a key festival event, seeing it through from programming to production, and assist in the overall management of the Festival along the way.
As Artshub wrote of the Emerging Writers’ Festival: “If you’re an up-and-coming writer, this is the place to get your foot in the door… as you’ll make invaluable connections within Melbourne’s thriving emerging literary scene.”
We couldn’t agree more and our interns have used the Creative Producer role as an incredible launching pad. Success stories include; Veronica Sullivan, Prize Manager of the Stella Prize; Eric Gardiner, writer of ‘Bounty’, which got rave reviews at this year’s Melbourne Fringe; Rachel Rawling, Sales & Business Development Coordinator at Penguin Books Australia; Izzy Roberts-Orr, Executive Producer of the Rereaders podcast.
You can read our interview with Adelaide Fisher, one of EWF15′s wonderful Creative Producers, about her experience working on the festival here.
So, if you’re keen to get hands-on experience in literary event management, and work with a friendly, supportive organisation who will provide you with excellent professional development, download a job pack.
This is a volunteer position, and would suit an arts management or communications students seeking a university-placement internship. Applications close 5pm Friday 18th December 2015. The Emerging Writers’ Festival runs June 14-24 2016.
