Access for Regional Writers Grant

The NSW Writers’ Centre is delighted to announce 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.

Applications are open from 5 June to 18 June 2017 (for projects taking place between 1 July and 31 December 2017)

Our 2016 grant recipients included writers from areas such as Lismore,
Tamworth, Wagga Wagga, Mudgee and Dubbo.

They used their travel funds to attend professional development activities at
Write Around the Murray Festival, Yellamundie National First Peoples
Playwriting Festival, New England Writers’ Centre, Hunter Writers Centre and
the NSW Writers’ Centre.

These grants are offered by the NSW Writers’ Centre with devolved funding from
Create NSW.
