WestWords Fellowship

WestWords and Varuna have partnered to award four fellowships each year to emerging writers from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds who have a connection to Western Sydney. The fellowships include a week’s mentoring and residency at Varuna, including meals and a private workspace to further develop a work in progress.

Key dates
Applications will open in June or July 2019 (exact dates to be confirmed). 

The residency week will run from Monday 21 October to Sunday 27 October, 2019.

What WestWords is looking for

The fellowships will be awarded to emerging writers of any genre who display exceptional promise in their writing style and the premise of the work. WestWords welcomes manuscripts from writers working in all creative forms, including fiction, drama, poetry, children’s books, and narrative non-fiction.


There are no application fees or program fees associated with this program.
