Varuna Writers' House new fellowship program - Writing Fire, Writing Drought

Varuna, the National Writer’s House has designed a new fellowship program to support writers from Regional NSW, and is calling for applications now.

Varuna’s Writing Fire, Writing Drought fellowships will be awarded to five writers from regional NSW and outer-western Sydney in 2020, and the hope for this year’s fellowship is to support writers to develop new work in response to the drought and bushfire crisis.

Each fellowship will include one-week of uninterrupted time to write in your own private studio, all meals, the companionship of your fellow writers and a one-hour writing consultation. Successful applicants will also receive a half-day professional development workshop during your residency.

Applications close 27 March 2020.
