Applications for season 1 of Toolkits 2021 are now open!

Express Media is proud to present the 2021 return of Toolkits: Fiction, Graphic Narratives and Nonfiction!

Each program is a 12-week intensive, where 8 young writers explore their chosen form in both theoretical and practical ways.

Toolkits is first and foremost a practical initiative. Young writers will be encouraged to write, workshop and edit their writing throughout the course. They will hone their skills in textual analysis, create their own original work (which can be experimental, autobiographical, biographical or journalistic), explore the possibilities of collaborative work, and learn how to pitch work to publishers when they’re done.

The lead facilitators for each Toolkits program for season one will be announced in the week of Monday 8 February. Participants also have the chance to learn from some of Australia’s best fiction writers, with special guests presenting live and online sessions for the next generation across the country.

If you are a young writer or artist interested in developing your practice, we want to hear from you!

Applications close 5pm Monday 22 February 2021.
