The call has gone out for interns for the 2013 Emerging Writers Festival.

I was an intern (Associate Producer, thankyouverymuch!) at the 2012 Festival, and it’s been one of the best moves I’ve made. I made awesome friends, got to know people better, got to know myself better. Survived on beer and chips for a few weeks in June. It was a fun experience, but it was also a really challenging experience, pushing a lot of limits I didn’t know I’d set for myself.

As an intern at EWF, you actually get assigned an event, and you make it happen. With guidance and support, of course, but the end result is something you can be proud of, and something amazing to put on your resume. In 2012, I got to organize the Melbourne and online teams for The Rabbit Hole, and it’s an event people are still talking about. As an EWF Associate Producer, you’ll get to make a difference at the festival, and in the lives and careers of emerging writers.

Applications close on the 23rd of January. You are a capable person. I believe in you – more importantly, the festival will believe in you.

Okay, #loveattack over.

Go. Now. Apply. You won’t regret it.
