Applications are now open for a new mentoring program for emerging writers from First Nations and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
Two writers will have the opportunity to work on a short piece of fiction or non-fiction (1000-1500 words) inspired by the themes of this year’s Antidote festival, under the guidance of Sweatshop affiliated mentors and with support from the Sydney Opera House. Finished works will be published on Sydney Opera House’s website and amplified across our social media channels (2 million+ followers).
Successful applicants will receive $1,000, an Antidote festival pass, three rounds of feedback on their writing project and up to 25 hours of mentorship from Sweatshop affiliated mentors. They will also have an opportunity to engage with some speakers from the Antidote festival line-up.
The program is open to emerging writers from First Nations and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds who have some record of publication but have not yet published a full-length work.
Applicants must be Sydney residents and over the age of 18.
Entries close 8 August 2021 11.59pm AEST.
