Young Ambassadors get behind-the-scenes passes to festivals and events as well as opportunities to interview writers and artists. They can take part in workshops to support their professional development including presenting in public. Each ambassador is assigned a mentor to help them identify and reach their own goals.

We look forward to seeing their news, reviews and interviews over the coming months!
