Applications for Text Camp 2014 are open!
Next Wave’s arts writing mentorship program TEXT CAMP is back in 2014 and better than ever! The newly expanded program aims to support the next generation of arts writers in Australia by providing professional development opportunities, brokering new relationships with peers and industry professionals and offering young writers the chance to see their work in print.
Here’s the lowdown:
Next Wave pairs a selection of emerging journalists with mentors hailing from leading local and international publications, including ABC Arts, The Thousands, This is Tomorrow, Exeunt Magazine, Vault and Art Guide Australia, amongst others. Each writer participates in a Text Camp Masterclass, a series of individual sessions with their mentor, publication in the Next Wave Magazine or Festival App, attendance at a selection of Next Wave Festival events and an honorarium of $500. In the lead-up to the festival, each mentee will work with their mentor to create a pitch to their mentor’s publication.
That’s money + mentorship + good festival times!
Applications close Monday 28 October, 5pm, so get writing!
