The ACT Writers Centre and the National Library of Australia are excited to announce the ACT Literary Bloggers of the Future Program. This program, presented for the first time in 2017, provides an opportunity for two emerging ACT-region writers to attend events at the National Library of Australia and document the experience for the ACT Writers Centre’s Capital Letters blog. The program, which will run from May to December, includes a mentorship with Sue Terry from Whispering Gums.
The program is aimed at emerging ACT-region writers who are interested in writing about the literary arts for the online environment. ‘Emerging’ means those with less than 5 years experience as a blogger but with a strong commitment to the form.
Applications close 4pm Friday 21 April 2017. Electronic submissions only, via Submittable.Apply now

Sue Terry has been writing the Whispering Gums litblog since 2009. While her prime focus is Australian literature, she also blogs about books from elsewhere and, somewhat serendipitously, on an eclectic mix of cultural events including literary (of course), music, dance, film and gallery/museum exhibitions. Now retired, she was in her professional life a librarian-archivist at the National Library of Australia and the National Film and Sound Archive. Visit Sue at Whispering Gums
