Copyright Agency First Nations Fellowship

Found in: News

Indigenous writers are invited to apply for new fellowships under an exciting new program developed by the National Writers' House Varuna, Magabala Books, Sydney University and the Copyright Agency's Cultural Fund.

The program invites both unpublished and published Indigenous writers to apply for a one-week residency at Varuna, the National Writers' House. Set in the Blue Mountains of NSW, Varuna is well known for its support of the writing process and the development of Australian literature. Each residency includes full board and accommodation including a room and writing studio for each writer, and all travel expenses to and from Varuna.

As a key partner in the program, Rachel bin Salleh, from leading Indigenous publisher Magabala Books, will be involved in selecting applications for the program. Magabala Books will also undertake to appraise all works completed by writers as a result of attending the fellowship program, with an option for possible publication.

Applications close midnight 15 December 2017. 

For further details, including how to apply, phone (02) 4782 567 or visit the website here.
