Creative Writing Fellowships for Regional NSW Writers

Filed : Arts and funding opportunities, Local and industry news .

Varuna invites writers living in regional New South Wales and the greater Sydney area to apply for a two-week residency at this historic home in the Blue Mountains.

The LitLink Fellowship includes full board and accommodation including a prepared evening meal, uninterrupted time to write in your own private studio, the companionship of your fellow writers and a full manuscript consultation with a Varuna Consultant. LitLink Fellowship recipients also receive a half-day ‘Publishing School’ workshop with experienced publisher, agent and editor Mary Cunnane.

The Litlink Fellowship helped me to believe in myself as a ‘real’ writer, and gave me the focused time I needed to edit my manuscript, which was contracted for publication with Penguin Random House the following year.’ Hayley Lawrence, 2016 Fellowship Program

Funded by Create NSW, Varuna offers five LitLink Fellowships to writers working in all creative forms, including fiction, drama, poetry and narrative non-fiction.

Residency dates for 2018 are Monday 3rd to Sunday 16th September.

Closing Date for applications:  Thursday 15 April 2018
