Submissions for the 2017 Newcastle Writers Festival program closed on 1 September 2016. No submissions received after that date will be considered, as it creates havoc with the design and printing of the program.

Please note: Only those whose submissions are accepted will be contacted. If you do not receive confirmation by September 30, your submission was not successful. Given we are a small team, it is not possible to provide feedback regarding unsuccessful submissions. Thank you for your understanding.
