We welcome submissions from writers at all stages of their career to participate in the 2023 Football Writers Festival, which will be held from 15th-17th July. Ideally, you have had work published in the 12-18 months prior to July 2023, or expect it will be published by the time of the Festival. 

Please consider how you would like to participate and seek approval from others before proposing a panel or joint event. The closing date for submissions is 12am AEST 30 September 2022. Successful applicants will be notified by the end of October. The Festival will cover the costs of economy class travel to Sydney and up to four nights accommodation for a limited number of successful applicants.


We are a small team and we regret that we are unable to provide individual feedback on your submission.

How would you like to be involved?
Thanks for submitting!
