Want to be a Youth Curator for The YA Collective in 2021?

No one knows young adults better than, well...young adults themselves! Each year, Scribblers offers a fantastic opportunity to become a Youth Curator, and shape a day-long program dedicated to YA literature during the Scribblers Festival’s Family Weekend. It's a chance to learn what really goes in to developing a creative festival, be mentored in programming content for The YA Collective, interact with Festival visitors, and expand your creative and leadership potential. You’ll be expected to bring your own ideas and energy to the program and take the lead as facilitators, researchers, interviewers, reviewers, and hosts. Do you have what it takes to be one of Scribblers Festival’s Youth Curators?

Applications for Scribblers 2020 are now closed. But stay tuned; we'll be looking for more Youth Curators for our 2021 Festival! If you want to find out what's involved, come along to this year's YA Collective, and see our 2020 Youth Curators at work.
