Access for Regional Writers Grants
Access for Regional Writers 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.
Previous 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.
