Applications open for NZSA Peter & Dianne Beatson Fellowship

Applications open for NZSA Peter & Dianne Beatson Fellowship

Calling for applications from writers of fiction, non-fiction, poetry and drama with a literary track record, who are currently working on a new project.

This annual Fellowship is generously donated by Peter Beatson and provides the successful applicant with a stipend of $7,000.

In 2016 the fellowship was awarded to Kāpiti writer Tina Makereti, enabling her to take time out to write before taking up a new role as Lecturer in Creative Writing at Massey University. The Fellowship time was crucial in making significant progress on a new novel, The Imaginary Lives of James Pōneke. By the time the Beatson Fellowship concluded, she had a final draft to send to her publisher, and the novel is now due for publication in March 2018 with Random House.

Deadline for applications: 4pm Friday 18 August 2017

To apply for the fellowship you need to be a member of the NZ Society of Authors (PEN NZ Inc). Membership is open to all developing and established writers. NZSA provides: literary sector news, a mentorship programme, manuscript assessment, manuscript services, contract advice, advocacy and representation for writers, information on the publishing industry, grants and other opportunities, along with affiliation to international PEN.

Scoop Review Of Books: 'the everrumble' by Michelle Elvy

This is Zettie’s tale from her birth date in 1965 through to her ‘passing’ at the age of 105. Yet, Zettie’s tale is our own tale, as humans still all-too-often hell-bent on destroying our environment and therefore our fellow creatures – and thus – symbiotically and inevitably – ourselves.
