Upcoming events



The Sydney Writers’ Festival internship program is designed to facilitate learning within a collaborative office environment, as well as to offer practical experience working on a large-scale festival event.

Each role has been designed according to specific learning outcomes. The internship program also provides valuable opportunities for students to network with professionals in Sydney’s thriving arts and cultural events industry. 

Our Internship Program is offered in partnership with the University of New South Wales, available to undergraduate and postgraduate students attending UNSW as part of an enrolled course in 2024. 

Applications for our main round of internships are now closed. 

Applications for our 2024 short-term internships for podcasting and videography (30 hours approx.) will open in March. 

If you would like to register your interest, please feel free to contact us at volunteers@swf.org.au and we will send you an invitation to apply when applications next open.
