West Writers

West Writers Group

West Writers Group is an annual competitive expression of interest process in which an intake of 15 writers and storytellers who undergo a 2 year professional development program.

West Writers’ Group (WWG) is a collective of writers from diverse backgrounds who currently live, work or have other established links to Melbourne’s west. The collective aims to amplify the stories and voices of the region, while providing invaluable mentorship, professional development, and practical experience to a select group of writers.

In developing the many individual stories of writers from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, WWG aims to create and profile an ecosystem of diverse narratives.

This unique two-year program offers aspiring writers of all forms the opportunity to share and create work, as well as participate in a series of professional development opportunities with mentors from Melbourne’s thriving literary community.

Applications for the 2018 program now open. Please email your expressions of interest to Khalid@footscrayarts.com by Wednesday 31 January, 5pm.
