Writing NSW | Access for Regional Writers Grants Opening 5 June31.05.2017
The NSW Writers’ Centre has announced that applications for the Writing NSW Access for Regional Writers Grants will open on 5 June 2017 for projects taking place between 1 July 2017 and 31 December 2017.
The grants are awarded by the NSW Writers’ Centre to help writers in regional NSW access professional development. Regional writers in any genre may apply for a travel grant of $300 to help them participate in a professional development event at an approved not-for-profit organisation. Professional development events can include workshops or seminars designed to further their writing or career skills.
2016 grant recipients included writers from areas including Lismore, Tamworth, Wagga Wagga, Mudgee and Dubbo. These writers used their travel funds to attend professional development activities at the Write Around the Murray Festival, Yellamundie National First Peoples Playwriting Festival, New England Writers’ Centre, Hunter Writers’ Centre and NSW Writers’ Centre. The grants are offered by the NSW Writers’ Centre with devolved funding from Create NSW.
