Opportunity to interview at writers festival

27 February 2012

Written by: Mary-Lou Ciampa

There is an opportunity for emerging journalists to interview writers featuring at the Bellingen Readers and Writers Festival in NSW over the weekend of 23 to 25 March.

Interviews will be published on the festival website but can also be posted on author’s own blog or pitched to other media outlets, with acknowledgements and links back to the festival site.

While a media pass will be provided for the festival, accommodation and travel costs will be at journalists’ own expense. Alternatively, interviews can be done by email.

Check out the website to see which writers will be appearing.

Send a short bio and links to examples of your writing to Olivia Parker: media@bellingenwritersfestival.com.au.

The festival organisers are also looking for volunteers for general duties, such as drivers for the guest speakers. Meals, refreshments and petrol will be provided.
