Writer in Residence

Australian creative writers of renown are invited to apply for a generous University of Sydney fellowship which provides a grant of $100,000 and other benefits to begin work on a project exploring issues around health.
 
The Charles Perkins Centre will again award a $100,000 grant and honorary appointment to an Australian writer in a creative genre – from fiction, poetry or performance, to creative non-fiction, digital media or screen.
 
The unique opportunity will support the successful applicant to begin work on a project related to the issues the Centre is dedicated to addressing, including health, wellbeing, food, ageing, social disadvantage and cultural identity.
 
The writer in residence will also receive working space at the Charles Perkins Centre Research and Education Hub on the University’s Camperdown campus, full access to the University’s library and the opportunity to work with the Centre’s researchers, educators and clinicians.
