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; Adelaide Fisher, Executive Assistant & Memberships Administrator for Regional Arts Victoria; Rachel Rawling, Sales & Business Development Coordinator at Penguin Books Australia; Izzy Roberts-Orr, Co-Director of National Young Writers Festival.
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 16th December 2016. The Emerging Writers’ Festival runs 14–23 June 2017.
