The Wheeler Centre invites readers to The Next Chapter writers’ scheme launch

The Wheeler Centre would like to invite you to join the Wheeler Centre Board and VIPs for the launch of our exciting new writers’ scheme, The Next Chapter.

Presented by the Wheeler Centre and supported by the Aesop Foundation, The Next Chapter aims to find the Australian stories that aren’t being told—the voices we’re not hearing—by supporting a new generation of writers, from all sorts of backgrounds. The scheme gives writers the time, support and space they need to develop their work.

Each year, we’ll pick 10 outstanding writers from around Australia and give them $15,000 each to develop their work. We’ll match them with a mentor, and work with them over 12 months and beyond to connect them to publishers and readers.

Across the country—in our regions, in our suburbs, in our cities—we know there are aspiring writers with stories to tell, and we’re looking forward to unearthing them.

The first 20 people to RSVP to by 5pm Tuesday 1 May will have the chance to attend.
