New FNAWN writers residency, masterclasses

The First Nations Australia Writers Network (FNAWN) has developed a new writers residency with the Regional Council of Goyder in South Australia.

Due to current recent and ongoing Covid-19 lockdowns, the residency is open to two South Australian FNAWN writers.

Open to authors, poets or storytellers from emerging to established, the five-day residency is situated on Ngadjuri Country in the township of Burra in South Australia. It includes a $500 stipend for each participant, donated by RMIT University and FNAWN, accommodation and pick up and and drop-off from Adelaide if required.

Accommodation is hosted by award-winning author Ali Cobby Eckermann.

‘The residency centres on free time to commit to your writings in a culturally safe space to explore new landscapes of country, township and to write one session with local school children,’ said FNAWN.

Applications close 29 July. See FNAWN’s Facebook post here for details.

FNAWN will also launch a series of masterclasses on 31 July with a Zoom masterclass presented by award-winning poet Samuel Wagan Watson. See FNAWN’s post here for more information.
