We’re thrilled to launch Season 2 of our 2018 Program, 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 The Scribe Nonfiction Prize, as well as branching out to new regions in Bendigo for Tracks in partnership with Writers Victoria and Bendigo Writers Festival.

In 2018, 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. Voiceworks kicked off this year with the release of issue #111 ‘Riff’, followed closely by #112 ‘Drag’ to be released in July.

A great way to be involved in our programs and 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 participate in our online writing program, Toolkits and attend Tracks: Bendigo. Throughout 2018 there are countless opportunities to ensure you – writers and lovers of lit – can keep reading, writing and discovering new ways to express yourself.

Download the program now and sign up to be a member to stay up to date with the opportunities coming your way in 2018.
