Our 2019 program is jam-packed with events, workshops and opportunities to get those pens to paper! We’re back with a bang, presenting much-loved initiatives such as The John Marsden & Hachette Australia Prize and Kat Muscat Fellowship, as well as branching out to new regions in Wodonga for Making Tracks.

In 2019, we encourage you to get stuck into the poetry, fiction, nonfiction, comics and art found in each issue of Voiceworks, Australia’s premier youth literary journal, and challenge you to submit your own work for feedback and publication, in print and online! Voiceworks kicks off this year with the release of issue 114 Slug, which will be launched at locations across Australia in April.
A great way to be involved in our programs, and to sharpen your own writing practise is joining as a member, or renewing your subscription to Voiceworks. All our program activity is free once you’re a part of the Express Media community, allowing you to attend Making Tracks or participate in our online writing program, Toolkits.

Throughout 2019 there are countless opportunities to ensure you – writers and lovers of storytelling – can keep reading, writing and discovering new ways to express yourself.

Thank you for your ongoing support of young Australian writers – we couldn’t do it without you.
