In 2010 Express Media is giving young people, the chance to apply to Write in Your Face, a program of support funded by the Literature Board of the Australia Council .
Express Media invites proposals from young writers who are using language in innovative ways. This may involve writing for zines, e-zines, comics, multimedia, multi-artforms or cross-media works, websites, live performance and spoken word. Collaborative and multimedia projects are encouraged.
‘We’re really excited to be able to offer this opportunity’ says Express Media’s Artistic Director Bel Schenk. ‘It was great to see so many innovative projects get up last year. So many young writers were involved in new and exciting projects and we are proud to be in the position to help make these projects happen’.
You may apply for up to $5000 but must be aged 30 years or younger at the time of application to apply.
