NZSA / Auckland Museum Research Grants Now Open

NZSA / Auckland Museum Research Grants Now Open


The Auckland Museum and New Zealand Society of Authors are once again delighted to offer three RESEARCH grants for writers who want to utilise the considerable facilities and resources of the Auckland Museum Library in the development of their fiction or non-fiction manuscript. They comprise one national grant of $3,500 (supplemented by an optional 4 weeks of accommodation in Auckland at the Michael King Writers Centre) and two regional grants of $1,500 for two Auckland writers.

For two of the grants applicants need to be members of the NZSA or Friends of the Museum but there is also one Auckland Grant that is open to all writers.

In 2013 the recipient of the National Research Grant was Jenny Haworth – a Christchurch writer and publisher who utilised the museum library to research her non-fiction book “Behind the Twisted Wire”. The two Auckland grants of $1,500 were awarded to Zoe Meager for her literary novella “Harry and Krisoula,” and Joelle Thomson for her non-fiction book “Wine in Aotearoa”.

Deadline: 06 October 2014

The New Zealand Society of Authors also has applications currently open for the Janet Frame Memorial Grant for literature, an award of $3,500, and the Peter & Dianne Beatson Fellowship, an award of $7,000 with an optional Foxton Beach Residency.
