Copyright Agency’s Author Fellowship doubles value to $80,000

The Copyright Agency has doubled its annual Author Fellowship for mid-to-late career authors from $40,000 to $80,000 this year.

Copyright Agency CEO Adam Suckling said it increased the prize money ‘in recognition of the time and effort that is required by authors to produce high-quality Australian stories’.

Entries for the fellowship close on 24 August. Authors must have at least five substantial published works and a publishing contract in place. Four publisher fellowships worth $10,000 each are also available for research in the digital publishing landscape.

The inaugural fellowship last year was awarded to Mark Henshaw to work on his new book, The Missing.
