Opportunity: Boundless Indigenous Writer's Mentorship

Applications are now open for Text Publishing and Writing NSW’s 2020 Boundless Indigenous Writer’s Mentorship.

The mentorship was established in 2019 to discover and nurture a powerful new Indigenous voice in Australian literature. The mentorship was welcomed by the Indigenous writing community and submissions were received from all over the country.

This joint initiative will provide a year-long structured mentorship to an unpublished Indigenous writer who has made substantial progress on manuscript of fiction and nonfiction. The recipient of the Mentorship will be paired with a senior Indigenous writer working in the same genre, providing feedback on their manuscript and professional advice.

The successful applicant will also receive professional development from Text Publishing and Writing NSW.

Applications will be judged by multi-award-winning Wiradjuri author Tara June Winch, alongside representatives from Text Publishing and Writing NSW.

The mentorship is an outcome of Boundless – the festival of Indigenous and culturally diverse writers, which will be held again on Saturday 26 October 2019 at Bankstown Arts Centre.

Applications for the Boundless Indigenous Writer’s Mentorship will close on Monday 25 November 2019.
