Byron Writers Festival Residential Mentorship

Byron Writers Festival Residential Mentorship dates announced

Calling all writers… it’s time to polish up that manuscript! Byron Writers Festival’s flagship program for emerging writers, the annual Residential Mentorship, is taking place 11–15 May 2020.

The mentorship provides five days in a glorious Byron Shire location with one-on-one mentoring with Marele Day and the company of three other committed writers. With accommodation and catering provided, this is an outstanding opportunity to participate in a writing experience that has already proven to be a launch pad for many regional writers.

Applications are open to writers of fiction, or narrative non-fiction who reside in the Northern Rivers and are over 18 years old.

Hammer and Hand Jewellery and Metal Collective

‘By Hammer and Hand all arts do stand’ was a sixteenth-century Blacksmiths’ Guild motto.

Hammer and Hand Jewellery and Metal Collective is a jewellery studio/workshop/gallery established in 1995 in Hobart, and in 2008 in the Arts and Industry Estate, Byron Bay.

As a collective, the current 11 members share the running of the gallery and workshop. Customers can meet a different member each day of the week, and browse work by all the members while watching the artists at work. Everything in the gallery is carefully handmade by one of the 11 artists – no mass-producing, no off-shore finishing.

Being in a collective enables emerging artists to gain knowledge of the creative industry and of creative techniques from the more established members. The gallery and workshop are open seven days a week, 10am–4pm. Off-street parking available.
