The fellowship program

Varuna's Copyright Agency Fellowships for First Nations Writers are open to all writers, published or unpublished, who are of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent and are currently living in Australia.

Supporting the best in new Australian writing.

Each year since 1991 Varuna has offered Residential Fellowships. Over this time Varuna has developed a unique environment encouraging sustained work, conversation and community among writers. Varuna Fellowships offer writers a residency in an environment wholly dedicated to writing, with accommodation and full board provided, to develop an established writing project.
