2013 Young Writers-In-Residence
Applications for 2013 Young Writer-In-Residence must be post marked on or before 5pm, Friday 2 August 2013
Three Positions are available for the ten days of Monday 2 December – Wednesday 11 December 2013.
Three Young Writers, up to the age of twenty-five years, will be selected for a 10-day residency at the Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers' Centre, Greenmount, up in the hills outside of Perth, WA.
The residents will receive a salary of $650 and be given writing space and time to concentrate on, develop or complete a work in progress. The writer will also be invited to participate in Katharine Susannah Prichard (KSP) Writers' Centre activities.
The Selection Committee will be looking for talented young writers able to show application to the craft of writing. It is expected that the 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. Applicants may conduct a workshop at the Centre during their residency. If the applicant wishes to do so full support will be given to that endeavour by the Centre. However, applicants who do not want to present a workshop will NOT be penalised.
If you have any queries or need further details please feel free to email or phone the office.
