Mascara announces new residency

Mascara Literary Review, in partnership with the Bundanon Trust, has announced the creation of the Mascara Bundanon Writer’s Residency.

The residency, which is now open for submissions, is for First Nations and culturally and linguistically diverse writers ‘with an innovative project that pushes their writing craft into new expressive and conceptual territory’. Applications can be for a project in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, scriptwriting, graphic novel, spoken word or criticism.

The winner receives a two-week residency at Bundanon in NSW, a stipend of $1000 and a manuscript reading to be arranged with Ultimo Press. Bundanon, formerly the home of artist Arthur Boyd, is located on Wodi Wodi Country along the Shoalhaven River. The Bundanon Trust offers artist residencies across all disciplines.

Applications for the inaugural Mascara Bundanon Writer’s Residency will be judged by Brian Castro and Declan Fry. For more details and to apply, see the Mascara website.
