National Young Writers Festival (NYWF)
Curve Gallery will host the National Young Writers Festival Media Hub during TiNA.
NYWF presents young and innovative writers working in both new and traditional forms including zines, comics, blogging, screenwriting, poetry, journalism, song writing, spoken word, comedy and prose. The festival will include an exhibition of pages from Australia’s biggest names in writing blown up large and splashed across the exhibition space in Curve.
NYWF presents ‘writing’ in its broadest sense through panels, discussions, workshops, launches, performances and readings.
NYWF gives young writers a place to present their work and share ideas, to learn about the industry in which they write and to meet with like-minded people in a friendly festival atmosphere. It celebrates and amplifies the creative voice of a new generation of writers and artists and is festive, idiosyncratic, and at times radical.
