Emerging Writers Festival

Book for an event

The Emerging Writers' Festival is an independent arts organisation based in Melbourne's Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas. We exist in order to promote the interests of emerging writers – to improve their opportunities for professional development as well as their engagement with the broader public. Each year the festival brings writers, editors, publishers and literary performers together with the reading public for a festival that is an essential part of Australia's literary calendar.
