Writing NSW Fellowships

Writing NSW awards two one-week Varuna residencies to members of Writing NSW for manuscripts, plays or poem collections ready for the next stage of development. One of the two fellowships is reserved for a writer under the age of 30.

Both fellowships include a week’s residency at Varuna, with full board and accommodation including a prepared evening meal, uninterrupted time to write in your own private studio, and the companionship of your fellow writers. 


Applications will open in September 2019 and close 22 September 2019.

What Writing NSW is looking for

Awarded annually, the Writing NSW Varuna Fellowships are for members who have a work of fiction, creative non-fiction, a play, or a suite of poems that is ready for the next stage of development.


There is a $20 entry fee to cover administration and reading fees.
