The Digital Writers’ Festival is an online-first writers’ festival dedicated to celebrating the work of writers from Australia and across the world, and fostering new relationships through collaboration between writers, where ever they may be.

DWF is running an open artist call out for writers to put up their hands and let them know they’d like to be involved in the sure-to-be-incredible 2018 program. Best of all, location is no barrier to access – you can be anywhere from Darwin to Dunedin, Johannesburg to Jaipur.

The Digital Writers’ Festival will take place from 30 October – 3 November 2018, right here on the internet.

Whether you see yourself as an artist or audience member, DWF would love to hear from you. If you’re successful, DWF will help you refine your idea and pair you with other writers. Applications close August 1.
