A Young Woman Writing


Emerging Women Writers_logo.png

Our Emerging Women Writers program is for non-established women writers who enjoy writing about football.

Here, women have the opportunity to publish an original, previously unpublished work in an anthology of stories to be launched at the 2023 Football Writers' Festival in Sydney.

Up to three of our leading emerging writers will also be invited to Australia to attend the 2023 Festival.

Congratulations to the 17 emerging writers from 11 countries who will be published in the anthology, as well as the three people to travel to Australia for the Football Writers' Festival. 

The judging panel for 2023 comprised:

  • Stephanie Brantz, Australia

  • Nick Harris, UK

  • Inas Mazhar, Egypt

  • Bonita Mersiades, Australia

  • Marcela Mora y Araujo, Argentina

  • Osasu Obayiuwana, Nigeria

  • Laura Williamson, UK

The Emerging Women Writers program is supported by eo Sports Lab.
