$10,000 Opportunity for Writers



Applications open for NZSA Peter & Dianne Beatson Fellowship 2018

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 awarded each year to a mid-career or senior writer to work on a project that shows a high level of literary merit and national significance and is donated by Peter Beatson. This year Peter has decided to increase the stipend for the fellowship to $10,000. We thank Peter for his continuing and generous support of New Zealand writers.

In 2017 the fellowship was awarded to Central Otago writer Jillian Sullivan, enabling her to work on a collection of creative non-fiction essays (including poetry) set in Central Otago and with a strong conservation base.

Deadline for applications: 4pm Friday 17 August 2018

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.
