The Writer's Space Fellowships

In this exciting new program, 12 two-week fellowships will be offered to writers with disability or who are D/deaf, with six residency fellowships and six online fellowships available. This program has been generously supported by the NSW Government and is available to writers in New South Wales only.

Residency fellowships will be offered from 6 September to 20 September 2021.  You can view the residency fellowships program here.

The online fellowships will run at a similar timeframe to the residency fellowships with key interactions scheduled between 6 September to 20 September, however participants will be encouraged to work at their own pace around this timeframe.  You can view the online fellowships program here.


There is no application fee for this program, nor are there any program costs. In addition, some funds will be available to assist with travel costs to and from Varuna.

Support from Accessible Arts

Accessible Arts, the peak arts and disability organisation in New South Wales, is providing advice and support to Varuna in delivering the program.
