Emerging Writers seek Reader

On Monday submissions close for the Emerging Writers' Festival’s The Reader, a publication that aims to be both a how-to and an inspiration for new scribes.

This publication’s new editor, Aden Rolfe (pictured), told the Wheeler Centre “I’m looking for creative work as well as non-fiction. And visual work. At the same time, I’m not interested in fiction that simply has a writer as a protagonist, or poetry about being unable to write poetry.”

Rolf is keen to bring his own stamp to the publication with new contributors regardless of age. “And as for writers, I encourage pitches from those who are emerging and those who are established. It should be said there’s also no age limit on emerging, either.”

Submissions close for The Reader on the 28th of June and Rolfe reckons the book will “hit the shelves, streets and bars at the end of October.”
