Five More Days to get an application in for Michael King Writers’ Centre Residencies 2018

New Zealand’s largest writer-residency organisation has totally revamped its programme for 2018 following calls by writers for greater flexibility.
The Michael King Writers’ Centre provides a year-round programme of residencies at the historic Signalman’s Cottage on Takarunga Mt Victoria in Devonport, Auckland. Residents receive accommodation, the use of a studio and a generous stipend.

Who Can Apply?
Writers from all over New Zealand, including those who live in Auckland, are welcome to apply.
The 20 week residency, offered in partnership with the University of Auckland, is for an established author who will benefit from the academic environment. The shorter residencies are open to emerging, mid-career or established writers.

Applications close on Friday 6 October, 2017 and the selections are expected to be announced in November.
