TEXT CAMP is Next Wave’s flagship arts writing mentorship program. It 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 reach new readership. Next Wave’s emerging arts writers have been invited to respond to the theme of New Grand Narrative by seeking out alternative narratives within Next Wave Festival and beyond.
