Writers Victoria launches professional development series for women of colour
Writers Victoria has announced it will run a series of professional development opportunities for women of colour writers in late 2017 and 2018.
The program will include paid commissions of new writing by women of colour, bursaries to attend Writers Victoria courses and a ‘free training session for established writers on how to run writing workshops’.
The first round of opportunities, which close in August, include two bursaries to attend Writers Victoria events and two commissions for new pieces of work to be published in the organisation’s The Victorian Writer magazine.
The organisation is planning to release further opportunities in 2018.
Writers Victoria said the program, which is funded by an anonymous donation, ‘aims to reduce barriers and increase publication and professional development opportunities for women of colour in Victoria’.
