Michael King Writers Centre Residencies 2019
The Michael King Writers’ Centre provides a year-round programme of residencies at the historic Signalman’s House on Takarunga Mt Victoria in Devonport, Auckland. Residents receive accommodation, the use of a writing studio and a generous stipend.
The 2019 programme offers 15 residencies for periods of two to five weeks each. Four of the residencies are specifically for Māori or Pasifika writers. New in this year’s programme is a change to the University of Auckland Residency, now split into four time slots across the year to attract a wider range of established writers.
Writers from all over New Zealand, including those who live in Auckland, are welcome to apply. The four residencies offered in partnership with the University of Auckland are for established authors with a substantial publishing record. The shorter residencies are open to emerging, mid-career or established writers.
Applications close on Monday 3 September, 2018 and the selections are expected to be announced in October.
