New Varuna fellowship program announced for Indigenous writers

A three-year, $30,000 grant from the Copyright Agency will fund a new fellowship program for Indigenous writers at Varuna.

The Copyright Agency Fellowships for First Nations Writers are open to both published and unpublished Indigenous writers. Successful applicants will undertake a one-week residency at Varuna, including full board and travel expenses.

The program was developed in partnership with Sydney University and Magabala Books. Magabala publisher Rachel bin Salleh will help select the writers, and Magabala will also appraise all works completed by writers attending the fellowship program with an option for possible publication.

Applications are open until midnight 15 December 2017. For more information, click here.
