Become a Reviewer in Residence at Durham Book Festival 2016

PrintAn exiting opportunity via Cuckoo Young Writers, enabling young people (aged 15-23) to get involved in the forthcoming Durham Book Festival by becoming reviewers in residence.

It’s a chance to hone your feature writing, blogging and interviewing skills through masterclasses and workshops with top professionals such as The Guardian’s North of England editor Helen Pidd and books vlogger (and festival “Vlogger in Residence”) Jen Campbell, get access to festival books and events and get a chance to interview festival stars. Our Reviewers in Residence team will be writing throughout the festival for the Durham Book Festival blog and for Cuckoo Review, and will have a chance to have their work published in the 2016 print edition of Cuckoo Press, published later this year.

It’s also a  fantastic opportunity to see how a book festival runs, improve journalism skills and do some networking with the literati, so if you’re interested in journalism, broadcasting, publishing or editing this is the opportunity for you.

For more information and to apply, head over to Cuckoo Young Writers.
