Express Media is honoured to present The Kat Muscat Fellowship, offering support and development for a young writer or editor.
About the Fellowship
The annual Kat Muscat Fellowship offers professional development up to the value of $3,000 for an editorial project or work of writing by a young female-identifying or non-binary person. Kat’s writing embodied her personal mantra of feminism, empathy and defiance, and each year the recipient of the fellowship is asked to take up her notion of challenge: exploring bold subjects, thinking deeply and critically about the world and the culture we consume, and reflecting and building on the craft of writing or editing.
The Kat Muscat Fellowship offers professional development up to the value of $3,000 in 2017. These funds may be used towards professional development opportunities, including, but not limited to: mentoring, residencies, interstate travel, or project fees.
The final budget will be developed in consultation with, and managed by, Express Media.
To be eligible, applicants must:
- Be female-identifying (including cis and trans women) or non-binary
- Be aged 16 to 30 at the commencement of the fellowship in 2017
- Be an Australian citizen or permanent resident of Australia
- Propose a suitable project that aligns with the theme of ‘Challenge’, and the values of Express Media and The Kat Muscat Fellowship.
Applications close 11.59pm January 15, 2017.
