Applications are now open for the second year of the Mentorship for Diverse Emerging Writers hosted by All About Women festival. The All About Women of Colour Mentorship program is open to women and non-binary 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 (1000 words) inspired by the themes of this year’s All About Women 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 All About Women 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 share their work live on stage in dialogue with the judges/mentors in a dedicated event at All About Women – In Colour: A Dialogue with Rising Artists and engage with some speakers from the All About Women festival line-up.
The program is open to women and non-binary 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 23 January 2022 at 11.59pm AEDT.
