UQ Library Creative Writing Fellowship opportunity

The University of Queensland Library is excited to announce that we are offering a $25,000 Fellowship for an emerging Australian author to create a new work of creative writing. The successful recipient will be immersed in a higher education setting and receive support from Library staff, the School of Communication and Arts and University of Queensland Press.

The Fellow will use the special collections of the Fryer Library as inspiration to create a novel, play, collection of short stories, book of poems, narrative non-fiction, creative non-fiction, biographical work, novella or associated creative work.

You will also have the opportunity to be mentored by an established Australian writer. Our mentors are Dr Nick Earls, Ross Cark, Sean Williams, Associate Professor Bronwyn Lea, John Birmingham, Matt Condon, Dr Veny Armanno and Dr Jessica White.

As part of the Fellowship you will also have a feedback session with the editorial team of University of Queensland Press.

Applications close on Sunday 30 September. More information is available online.
