Rising in the West Fellowship

Closes September

These one-week residencies and manuscript consultations are awarded to writers selected by our five partnering organisations: Bankstown Poetry Slam, Mascara Literary Review, Sweatshop, the Writing and Society Research Centre and Urban Theatre Project.

This program is a one-year program funded by Create NSW. The residency week is in April 2019, and selected writers from this program will be profiled in our Blue Mountains Writers’ Festival, to be held from 22-25 August 2019. 

The 2019 fellowship recipients include Shirley Le, Sarah Saleh, Chloe Sheridan and Karina Ko. 

We are very grateful for the support of the Western Sydney Strategic Opportunities Fund of Create NSW for this program.
