Applications for KSP's Emerging Writer-in-Residence close Friday, 27 August 2010

Each year KSPWC is proud to promote the craft of writing by hosting a number of writers in our residency program which is funded by the Department of Culture and the Arts. The residency program includes positions for established and emerging writers as well as our young writers residency. As well as allowing each writer the time and space to work on their own writing projects, the writers participate in the events of the centre and run workshops thus sharing their knowledge and experience throughout our writing community.

Applications for the Emerging Writer-in-Residence are closing on Friday, 27 August 2010

Three positions are available - dependent on funding – for a full-time period of four weeks.

Each resident will receive a salary of 2,250 and be given writing space and time to concentrate on, develop or complete a work in progress.

Preference for one position will be given to a WA rural/regional or culturally and linguistically diverse writer.

Emerging does not mean beginner.

The Selection Committee will be looking for talented writers able to show application to the craft of writing. It is expected that selected writers will have some published material, in the print, visual or broadcast media. Ideally, applicants should be working towards achieving their first major full-length publication.
