Become a reviewer or editor for a day

Want to see your byline online? Here’s your chance to become a reviewer for the day at the 2015 Melbourne Writers Festival (MWF15).

Victoria University is looking for aspiring writers, journalists, literary types, hacks, bloggers, vloggers, poets and more to review during the festival and we will publish your work in our MWF15 Reviewer for a day blog.

This opportunity is open to everyone. No matter what your experience, if you’re passionate about writing, we encourage you to apply. Come on, give it a go! You could be reviewing Naomi Klein!

If last year's response is anything to go by, everyone will be applying, so get in quick!

This year we're also looking for aspiring editors! We’re assembling a small editorial team to help manage the content that’s going up on the blog. If you're interested please get in touch with us via the registration webform - there are very limited places.
