Canberra folk! You’ll have noticed that the autumn arts season is well and truly upon us and Scissors Paper Pen has an opportunity for young writers to be a part of it!

Scissors Paper Pen is very excited to announce that we are partnering with Express Media to bring their Buzzcuts reviewing program to Canberra for You Are Here festival next month (13-17 April 2016). Buzzcuts is an Express Media program that trains young writers and broadcasters in critical arts reviewing taking place at festivals around Australia.

If you are interested in review writing and interviewing and you are aged 25 or under, this is a wonderful opportunity to learn new skills and to see your work published. Reviews and interviews will be published on the Buzzcuts and Scissors Paper Pen websites, and you will have the opportunity to have your reviews considered for publication by BMA magazine. You will also receive training through a skills development workshop with Scissors Paper Pen and the editor of BMA magazine on the morning of Saturday 9 April. Previous Buzzcuts writers have gone on to write for a wide range of publications, win awards for their reviews and start their own wonderful creative projects around Australia.

Express Media and Scissors Paper Pen are seeking five reviewers aged 25 or under to write at least three reviews and one interview each during You Are Here festival.

Applications close at 9am on 4 April 2016 and all applicants will be notified of the outcome soon after. Full details on Buzzcuts and how to apply can be found over at Express Media.

Express Media’s Buzzcuts program is presented in Canberra in partnership with Scissors Paper Pen and You Are Here.
