From our 'writers' in action...

Get your blog post on the ABC OPEN website

R U ready to find a bit more purpose - and an extra home - for your blogs? 

I have received the following invitation to Writers in Action students from Jane Curtis, ABC OPEN Producer. 

Hi Sue,
It could be very possible to publish a student blog on ABC Open.
For ABC Open the brief is different from a “normal” media outlet. The brief would be to “write about your own experience and ideas”, rather than a journalistic piece that reports on the festival.
The blog would be written in the first person.
The broad brief is writing about
• Life in regional Australia
• Community issues
• Local initiatives (but not promotion!)
A La Trobe student’s BWF blog post from 2012, Pip Younes piece on meeting Ita Buttrose, is an example. 

By the way, Pip is "doing" WiA this year - and a great ambassador she is too!

If you would like to submit a blog post to ABC you can contact Jane Curtis directly - jane.curtis@abc.net.au - and cc me into your email. Let Jane know you are one of my "Writers in Action" students.
