Emerging Writers’ Festival Announce Ambassadors

The Emerging Writers’ Festival has appointed five Ambassadors who will share their experience, insight and knowledge with the next generation of writers at the National Writers’ Conference, a keynote event running as part of the Festival.

Some of Australia’s finest writers have been selected to share their knowledge, including Adam Liaw, Alice Pung, Chandani Lokuge, First Dog on the Moon and Omar Musa.

The two-day National Writers’ Conference is one of the best ways for aspiring and emerging writers to get tips and advice from industry experts, as well as looking at ways to refine their craft and diversify their practice.

Discussion will include the birth of good ideas, and how to be a writer in the world – applicable for writers across all genres and offering the opportunity to push the ideas and possibilities of the literary form to create new narratives and perspectives.

The National Writer’s Conference runs from Saturday June 18 – Saturday June 19 at the State Library. It acts as part of the Emerging Writers’ Festival, running from Tuesday June 14 – Friday June 24.
