Magabala announces fellowship for mid-career writers

Magabala Books has launched a new fellowship for mid-career First Nations writers and storytellers, worth $10,000.

The Magabala Fellowship, supported by the Serp Hills Foundation, is open to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander storytellers and writers across any genre who have at least one previous publication. It is intended to provide time for a mid-career author to work on a current manuscript.

‘We created this fellowship in response to the conversations we’ve been having with our writers and creators,who’ve said “time to write” is the most valuable thing,’ said Magabala publisher Rachel Bin Salleh. ‘This Fellowship is about providing the means and time to create new work.’

The Magabala Fellowship is now open for applications and closes on 30 October 2020. For more information, see the Magabala website.
