Express Media is honoured to open submissions for the 2020 Kat Muscat Fellowship to develop young writers and editors from around Australia 💜

The annual Kat Muscat Fellowship offers professional development up to the value of $5,000 for an editorial project or work of writing by a young person of an underrepresented gender. The Fellowship aims to continue Kat’s legacy and further develop the future of defiant and empathic young Australian writers and editors.

Kat was an integral part of Express Media for many years, before becoming Editor of Voiceworks from 2012 to 2014. Throughout her 10 years with Express Media, Kat helped to shape the career of young writers and editors from all around Australia.

The Fellowship is made possible with the generous support of the community and the Muscat family.

Applicants must be a person of an underrepresented gender or sex, and be aged 16 to 30 at the commencement of the Fellowship. Applications are open now until 11.59pm AEDT, Sunday 12 January 2020.
