Fulbright-Creative New Zealand Pacific Writers’ Residency

Fulbright New Zealand and Creative New Zealand invite applications for the 2008 Fulbright-Creative New Zealand Pacific Writers’ Residency, an award which offers a New Zealand writer the opportunity to work for three months on a creative writing project exploring Pacific identity, culture or history at the University of Hawai'i.

Valued at NZ$30,000, the residency includes return airfares to Hawai'i, accommodation costs and an artist stipend. It is open to writers across all genres, including playwrights, fiction and non-fiction writers, poets and screen writers. Previous recipients have been filmmaker Sima Urale, performance poet Tusiata Avia, playwright Victor Rodger and children’s author Sarona Aiono-Iosefa.

The three month residency is available from mid-August 2008. The closing date for applications to Creative New Zealand is 2 May 2008.
