NZSA Lilian Ida Smith Award 2017

NZSA Lilian Ida Smith Award 2017

Award of $3,000 available to writers over the age of 35yrs

The Lilian Ida Smith Award is offered by the NZ Society of Authors PEN Inc (NZSA) thanks to a bequest from Lilian Ida Smith, a music teacher of Whanganui who had a keen interest in the arts.

Lilian left part of her legacy to the NZSA to 'assist people aged 35yrs and over to embark upon or further a literary career'.
• The $3,000 award is to assist writers of non-fiction, fiction, poetry, comic / graphic novels and drama for adults and children. Applicants need to be aged 35 years and over, working towards completion of a specific project, and members of the NZSA.
• Applicants are expected to be either in the early stages of their writing career, or to be someone for whom opportunities to fulfill their potential have been limited.
Past recipients of the Lilian Ida Smith Award have used the award to purchase a laptop and to pay for childcare in order to schedule time for themselves to write in.

Deadline for applications is 30 October 2017

Membership of the NZ Society of Authors PEN Inc (NZSA) is open to all budding and established writers. NZSA advocates for and represents writers and is affiliated with International PEN. It provides a mentorship programme, a manuscript assessment programme, manuscript services, contract advice, grants and other opportunities, information about writing and publishing via a fortnightly e-news and a quarterly magazine and other membership benefits.
